PHP fopen() 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 fopen() Function.

The built-in PHP fopen() function opens a file or URL. If fopen() fails, it can return false or error on failure. We can hide the error output by adding an '@" in front of the function name.


Following below is the syntax to use this function -

resource fopen ( string $filename , string $mode [, bool $use_include_path = FALSE [, resource $context ]] )

This function can bind named resource specified by filename or a stream.


Try out the below example -

   $file = fopen("/PhpProject/sample.txt", "r");
   $file = fopen("/PhpProject/index.php", "r");
   $file = fopen("/PhpProject/sample1.txt", "wb");

Alright guys! This is where we are rounding up for this tutorial guide. In our next tutorial guide, we are going to be discussing about the PHP fpassthru() Function.
