I am currently working on a PHP project and I need some help with a particular task. I want to strip a PHP variable and replace any white spaces with dashes. Can someone please guide me on how to achieve this?
To provide a little context, I have a variable called $productName, which holds the name of a product. Sometimes, this name contains spaces and that's causing some issues when I'm trying to use it in certain functions or URLs. To overcome this, I believe I need to strip the variable of any spaces and replace them with dashes.
I'm not sure about the exact functions or methods to use in PHP to accomplish this. So if any experienced developers could share their insights and suggest the most efficient way to achieve this, it would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to your help and guidance. Thanks in advance!
