PHP fputcsv() Function

Hello folks! welcome back to a new edition of our tutorial on PHP. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the PHP fputcsv() Function.

The PHP fputcsv() function can format a line as CSV and writes it to an open file.


Following below is the syntax to use this function -

int fputcsv ( resource $handle , array $fields [, string $delimiter = "," [, string $enclosure = '"' [, string $escape_char = "\\" ]]] )

Return Value

It returns the length of a written string on success and false on failure.


Try out the below example -

   $list = array (
      array('aaa', 'bbb', 'ccc', 'dddd'),
      array('123', '456', '789'),
      array('"aaa"', '"bbb"')   

   $fp = fopen("/PhpProject/sample.csv", "w");

   foreach($list as $fields) {
      fputcsv($fp, $fields);
   echo "The list data has been inserted successfully to .csv file";



When the above code is executed, it will produce the following result -

The list data has been inserted successfully to .csv file
