$sanitizer->path() method

Validate the given path, return path if valid, or false if not valid

Returns the given path if valid, or boolean false if not.

Path is validated per ProcessWire "name" convention of ascii only [-_./a-z0-9] As a result, this function is primarily useful for validating ProcessWire paths, and won't always work with paths outside ProcessWire.

This method validates only and does not sanitize. See $sanitizer->pagePathName() for a similar method that does sanitiation.

Usage

// basic usage
$bool = $sanitizer->path(string $value);

// usage with all arguments
$bool = $sanitizer->path(string $value, $options = []);
