Description:
------------
Some Chinese characters may lead to messy codes through trim or rtrim, such as the Chinese character "言", and other untested.
I am using the PHP5.6.30 version, Other versions have not been tested.

Test script:
---------------
$str = "、汉语言、";
echo ltrim($str, '、')."<br/>"; //correct
echo rtrim($str, '、')."<br/>"; //messy
echo trim($str, '、')."<br/>"; //messy

Expected result:
----------------
汉语言、
、汉语言
汉语言

Actual result:
--------------
汉语言、
、汉语�
汉语�

hi, php strings are generic byte sequences, not character sequences.

which means that you are not allowed to use the second parameter of trim, ltrim and rtrim like that.

look for a trim/ltrim/rtrim function that works on multibyte strings, and look at the functions bundled in the mbstring, intl or iconv extensions

here's a list of functions you can and you cannot use with multibyte encodings

Standard string functions does not support multibyte encodings basically.
You cannot use multibyte chars as trimming char.

Request #23501 already suggests to add mb_trim(). Shouldn't we
