PHP count occurencies

Hi all,

I would like to know if there is a php function that allow to count the number of occurencies for a character or string in another string.

Do you know such a function ?  It would most probably be much faster than to explode / split an array then count the number of elements of this array.


(more options below)

Um, if you mean for example

$str = "Hello world!, it's nice world!";

and you would like to know how often "world!" occurs in the string, just use substr_count.

$count = substr_count($str,"world");

visit the manual ;)
