Descriptionstring basename ( string path [, string suffix])
Given a string containing a path to a file, this function will return the base name of the file. If the filename ends in suffix this will also be cut off.
On Windows, both slash (/) and backslash (\) are used as path separator character. In other environments, it is the forward slash (/).
Note: The suffix parameter was added in PHP 4.1.0.
