Validating only alphabetic characters by ctype_alpha

bool ctype_alpha(string $input_string)
By using ctype_alpha function in php we can check or validate alphabetic characters only. Using this function we can check any input coming from insecure ( or any other ) sources. This function is case insensitive so can't differentiate between lower case and upper case alphabetic characters. Here is the syntax of this function.

Now let us try with some examples.
$var="AbCDef";
if(ctype_alpha($var)){
echo " This is alphabetic ";
}else{ 
echo "this is not alphabetic";
}
By changing the value of $var you can check this function.
We can check user input from a form for presence of alphabets only, here is the sample code.
if(ctype_alpha($_POST['var'])){
echo " This is alphabetic ";
}else{ echo "this is not alphabetic";}
To check only alphanumeric characters we can use ctype_alnum function.
