Net_MAC::check()

Net_MAC::check() – Validates Media Access Control (MAC) addresses

Synopsis

require_once 'Net/MAC.php';

string Net_MAC::check ( string $input , string $delimiter=':' )

Description

This function will check a MAC address to make sure it is valid.

Parameter

  • string $input - The string containing the MAC Address

  • string $delimiter - The string representing the delimiter to use when checking the MAC Address

Return value

boolean - TRUE if the MAC address is valid, FALSE otherwise

Note

This function should be called statically.

Example

Using check()

<?php
require_once "Net/MAC.php";

$macaddr 'AB:CD:EF:00:11:22';

$mac Net_MAC::check($macaddr);
if (
$mac) {
    echo 
"$macaddr is valid";
}
else {
    echo 
"$macaddr is invalid";
}
?>

This would output the following:

ab:cd:ef:00:11:22 is valid

Using check() to get a MAC address with a different delimiter

<?php
require_once "Net/MAC.php";

$macaddr 'AB:CD:EF:00:11:22';

$mac Net_MAC::check($macaddr'-');
if (
$mac) {
    echo 
"$macaddr is valid";
}
else {
    echo 
"$macaddr is invalid";
}
?>

This would output the following:

AB:CD:EF:00:11:22 is invalid

since the delimiter '-' was not used in the provided MAC address.
