PHP - convert %20 back to blank space

Hi,
how do I convert %20 back to an actual space?

From

$myvar = 'myweb.com/225/About_Our_Shopping_Cart/LINK%20Online%20Shop';

to

$myvar = 'myweb.com/225/About_Our_Shopping_Cart/LINK Online Shop';

Open in new window

You could use 'str_replace' but the question is why would you want to?  Actual spaces can cause problems in URLs and that is the normal way to handle that.  Web servers normally convert %20 to a plain space anyway.  I always remove spaces from directory and file names.

$myvar = urlencode('myweb.com/225/About_Our_Shopping_Cart/LINK%20Online%20Shop');

Thanks for your feedback, reason to remove them is because I pass URL to a another page and process the link.
