PHP fputs() 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 fputs() Function.

The built-in PHP fputs() function writes to an open file. This built-in function stops at the end of the file or when it reaches the specified length, whichever comes first. This function is an alias of the fwrite() function.

Syntax

Following below is the syntax to use this function -

fputs(file,string,length)


This function is binary-safe which means that both binary data such as images and character data can be written using this function.

Return Value

This built-in PHP function returns the number of bytes written on success or false on failure.

Example

Try out the below example -

<?php
   $file = fopen("/PhpProject1/sample.txt", "w");
   echo fputs($file, "Hello Webdesigntutorialz!!!!");
   fclose($file);
?>

Output

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