Strip characters from right of string

Hi
I have entries in a mysql table that I read out, and then display on a page. The entries are the names of images, but some contain spaces in the name, eg. Image 234.jpg

What happens now is that I do this:
...
$pict = $myrow["picture"];
      if($pict) {
      $picture = trim($pict);
      $picture = rawurlencode($picture);
      // $picture = rtrim($picture, "%5C%22");
      }
...

For some reason, when I look at the source of the resulting page, there are "%5C%22" added to the end of the image name in the SRC line, causing the image not to be displayed.
As you can see, I tried an rtrim specifying these characters, but it does not remove them...

Any ideas?

Looks like a previous error when assigning name to image, because hex sequence correspond to:  \"

%5C%22 urlencoded is \", so you might try

$picture = rawurlencode(preg_replace('/\\"$','',$picture));

to remove that garbage before you urlencode that string.
