Below programs illustrate the IntlChar::islower() function in PHP:



Program 1:

<?php
// PHP code to illustrate IntlChar::islower()
// function
    
// Input data is character type
var_dump(IntlChar::islower("a"));
echo "<br>";
var_dump(IntlChar::islower("A"));
echo "<br>";
var_dump(IntlChar::islower("u{0041}"));
echo "<br>";
   
// Input data is control character
var_dump(IntlChar::islower(" "));
echo "<br>";
   
// Input data is string type 
var_dump(IntlChar::islower("Geeksforgeeks"));
echo "<br>";
    
// Input data is number type
var_dump(IntlChar::islower("2018"));
echo "<br>";
    
// Input data is single digit
var_dump(IntlChar::islower("5"));
echo "<br>";
  
?>

/div>

Output:

bool(true) 
bool(false) 
bool(false) 
bool(false) 
NULL 
NULL 
bool(false) 

Note: If String and Numbers (except single digit number) are used as a parameter then it returns NULL.

Program 2:

<?php
// PHP code to illustrate IntlChar::islower()
       
// Declare an array $arr
$arr = array("a", "u{FF41}", "A", "u{0041}", "0", " ", "123", "Geeks");
  
// u{0041} is ASCII value of 'A'
// u{FF41} is ASCII value of 'a'
  
// Loop run for every array element
foreach ($arr as $val){
          
    // Check each element as code point data
    var_dump(IntlChar::islower($val));
    echo "<br>";
}
?>

Output:

bool(true) 
bool(true)
