PHP fgetss() Function


Hello dear readers! welcome back to another edition of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the PHP fgetss() Function.

The fgetss() function returns a line with HTML and PHP tags removed from an open file. This function stops returning on a new line at a specified length or EOF, whichever comes first.

Syntax

Following below is the syntax to use this function -

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


This function is similar to fgets() function except that the fgetss() function attempts to strip out any HTML or PHP tags from the text it reads.

Return Value

This built-in PHP function returns a string of length -1 bytes from the file pointed to by the user after removing all the HTML and PHP tags or false on failure.

Example1

Try out the below example -

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

Output
