(PHP 3, PHP 4, PHP 5)

fgetss -- Gets line from file pointer and strip HTML tags


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

Identical to fgets(), except that fgetss attempts to strip any HTML and PHP tags from the text it reads.

You can use the optional third parameter to specify tags which should not be stripped.

Note: allowable_tags was added in PHP 3.0.13, PHP 4.0.0.

Parameter length is optional since PHP 5.

Note: If you are having problems with PHP not recognizing the line endings when reading files either on or created by a Macintosh computer, you might want to enable the auto_detect_line_endings run-time configuration option.

See also fgets(), fopen(), fsockopen(), popen(), and strip_tags().
