PHP – str_replace (replace characters in a string)

The function str_replace() (as defined in PHP manual) – “replace all occurrences of the search string with the replacement string.

What this means if you simply need to replace a character in a variable or a word in a phrase you should use this function. (If you need to use regular expressions to find a pattern match then use preg_replace() instead).

As simple as that.
