if you have a string $string try using

substr_replace($string ,"",-1);

it will remove tha last character from $string.

This doesn't EVEN work because you need to do this:
$string = substr_replace($string ,"",-1);


substr_replace($string ,"",-1);

Veselin, nice response. Jon, why put Matt down, he's clearly learning. I pray that you don't pollute the world with any offspring.

Actually, trim can work. Specifically, rtrim.

echo rtrim('remove the letter a', 'a');
