Auto Orientate Image (Exif / PHP)

The following function will take an image path and automatically orientate it based on the images exif data. If it can’t find the exif data, it will do nothing!

function autoRotateImage($imagePath) {
	$exif = exif_read_data($imagePath);

	if(!isset($exif['Orientation'])) return;

	$ort = $exif['Orientation'];

	$image = imagecreatefromjpeg($imagePath);

	switch($ort) {
		case 3:
			$image = imagerotate($image, 180, 0);
		case 6:
			$image = imagerotate($image, -90, 0);
		case 8:
			$image = imagerotate($image, 90, 0);

	imagejpeg($image, $imagePath);

Note: I added an extra line at the top of the reverse-scroll script to stop an annoying “max hotkeys per interval” dialog box popping up. Here’s my full AutoHotKey.ahk script:

Split String Method C++ / CPP

Here is a method that allows you to split a string in C++ (CPP). I couldn’t find a decent one on the internet so I wrote my own. The method accepts a source string and splits it by the specified delimiter. It returns a vector. I hope someone finds this useful!

std::vector<string> splitString(std::string source, std::string delimiter)
    console() << "Splitting " << source << " :: at :: " << delimiter << std::endl;
    int len = source.length();
    std::vector<string> words;
    std::string prev = "";
    for(int i = 0; i < len; ++i)
        std::string c = source.substr(i,1);
        if( != 0) prev = prev + c;
        if(( == 0 || i == len-1) && != -1) {
            prev = "";
    return words;
