If I had:

$string = "PascalCase";

I need

"pascal_case"

Does PHP offer a function for this purpose?

Try this on for size:

$tests = array(
  'simpleTest' => 'simple_test',
  'easy' => 'easy',
  'HTML' => 'html',
  'simpleXML' => 'simple_xml',
  'PDFLoad' => 'pdf_load',
  'startMIDDLELast' => 'start_middle_last',
  'AString' => 'a_string',
  'Some4Numbers234' => 'some4_numbers234',
  'TEST123String' => 'test123_string',
);

foreach ($tests as $test => $result) {
  $output = from_camel_case($test);
  if ($output === $result) {
    echo "Pass: $test => $resultn";
  } else {
    echo "Fail: $test => $result [$output]n";
  }
}

function from_camel_case($input) {
  preg_match_all('!([A-Z][A-Z0-9]*(?=$|[A-Z][a-z0-9])|[A-Za-z][a-z0-9]+)!', $input, $matches);
  $ret = $matches[0];
  foreach ($ret as &$match) {
    $match = $match == strtoupper($match) ? strtolower($match) : lcfirst($match);
  }
  return implode('_', $ret);
}

Output:

Pass: simpleTest => simple_test
Pass: easy => easy
Pass: HTML => html
Pass: simpleXML => simple_xml
Pass: PDFLoad => pdf_load
Pass: startMIDDLELast => start_middle_last
Pass: AString => a_string
Pass: Some4Numbers234 => some4_numbers234
Pass: TEST123String => test123_string

This implements the following rules:

  1. A sequence beginning with a lowercase letter must be followed by lowercase letters and digits;
  2. A sequence beginning with an uppercase letter can be followed by either:
    • one or more uppercase letters and digits (followed by either the end of the string or an uppercase letter followed by a lowercase letter or digit ie the start of the next sequence); or
    • one or more lowercase letters or digits.

A regex would be simplest:

$input = 'foo_left.jpg';
if(!preg_match('/_(left|right|center)/', $input, $matches)) {
    // no match
}

$pos = $matches[0]; // "_left", "_right" or "_center"

See it in action.

Update:

For a more defensive-minded approach (if there might be multiple instances of "_left" and friends in the filename), you can consider adding to the regex.

This will match only if the l/r/c is followed by a dot:

preg_match('/(_(left|right|center))./', $input, $matches);

This will match only if the l/r/c is followed by the last dot in the filename (which practically means that the base name ends with the l/r/c specification):

preg_match('/(_(left|right|center))\.[^\.]*$/', $input, $matches);

And so on.

If using these regexes, you will find the result in $matches[1] instead of $matches[0].

The following works invoke it as select * from table(splitter('a,b,c,d'))

create or replace function splitter(p_str in varchar2) return  sys.odcivarchar2list
is
v_tab sys.odcivarchar2list:=new sys.odcivarchar2list();
begin
with cte as (select level  ind from dual
connect by 
level <=regexp_count(p_str,',') +1
)
select regexp_substr(p_str,'[^,]+',1,ind)
bulk collect into v_tab
from cte;
return v_tab;
end;

Use String.Format() with the format specifier. I think you want {0:F20} or so.

string formatted = String.Format("{0:F20}", value);

This can't work properly. Stored with Unicode there are many more Characters than with ANSI. So if you "convert" to ANSI, you will loose lots of charackters.

http://php.net/manual/en/function.htmlentities.php

You can use Unicode (UTF-8) charset with htmlentities:

string htmlentities ( string $string [, int $flags = ENT_COMPAT [, string $charset [, bool $double_encode = true ]]] )

htmlentities($myString, ENT_COMPAT, "UTF-8"); should work.
