Syntax

string fgetss ( resource $handle [, int $length [, string $allowable_tags]] );

Definition and Usage

Identical to fgets(), except that fgetss() attempts to strip any HTML and PHP tags from the text it reads.

Paramters

ParameterDescription
handleThe file pointer must be valid, and must point to a file successfully opened by fopen() or fsockopen() (and not yet closed by fclose()).
lengthLength of the data to be retrieved.
allowable_tagsYou can use the optional third parameter to specify tags which should not be stripped.

Return Value

Returns a string of up to length - 1 bytes read from the file pointed to by handle, with all HTML and PHP code striped. If an error occurs, returns FALSE.

Example

Following is the usage of this function:

<?php
$handle = @fopen("/tmp/inputfile.htm", "r");
if ($handle) {
    while (!feof($handle)) {
        $buffer = fgetss($handle, 4096);
        echo $buffer;
    }
    fclose($handle);
}
?>
