Dear users

I'm looking for a way to identify the position of a string, which is
not the first.

For example, when we use-strpos () - to find the underscore "_" in the word:

ab_cd_ef

The function strpos () will return 3. But I wanted to return the
position of the second occurrence, 6.

Does anyone know a way to deal with this problem?

Best regards,
Peter
