How can I reverse this condition in my function so that I don't need an else?
<?php
 

chdir_safe('../something\file.txt');
 

function chdir_safe($dir)

{	

	

	if (substr($dir,0,1) == "/" || substr($dir,0,1) == "\\" || substr($dir,1,1) == ":" ){

		//url is absolute

	}

	else

	{

		echo "fix the url<br>";

	}

	

	echo $dir;

	exit;

}

?>

Use the logical 'not' prefix which is an exclamation mark "!"
<?php

 

chdir_safe('../something\file.txt');

 

function chdir_safe($dir)

{       

        

        if (!substr($dir, 0, 1) == "/" 

            || !substr($dir, 0, 1) == "\\" 

            || !substr($dir, 1, 1) == ":" )

        {

            echo "fix the url<br>";

        }

        

        echo $dir;

        exit;

}

?>

Hello,

Use this:


<?php
 
chdir_safe('../something\file.txt');
 
function chdir_safe($dir)
{      
       
        if (!(substr($dir,0,1) == "/" || substr($dir,0,1) == "\\" || substr($dir,1,1) == ":" )){
                     
                echo "fix the url<br>";
        }
       
        echo $dir;
        exit;
