tidy_parse_string --  Parse a document stored in a string


Procedural style:

tidy tidy_parse_string ( string input [, mixed config [, string encoding]] )

Object oriented style:

bool tidy->parseString ( string input [, mixed config [, string encoding]] )

tidy_parse_string() parses a document stored in a string.

The config parameter can be passed either as an array or as a string. If you pass it as a string, it means the name of the configuration file, otherwise it is interpreted as the options themselves. Check http://tidy.sourceforge.net/docs/quickref.html for an explanation about each option.

The encoding parameter sets the encoding for input/output documents. The possible values for encoding are: ascii, latin0, latin1, raw, utf8, iso2022, mac, win1252, ibm858, utf16, utf16le, utf16be, big5 and shiftjis.

Example 1. tidy_parse_string() example


   <p>error<br>another line</i>


$buffer = ob_get_clean();
$config = array('indent' => TRUE,
                'output-xhtml' => TRUE,
                'wrap' => 200);

$tidy = tidy_parse_string($buffer, $config, 'UTF8');

echo $tidy;

The above example will output:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
      error<br />
      another line

Note: The optional parameters config and encoding were added in Tidy 2.0.
