fputcsv

(PHP 5 >= 5.1.0)

fputcsvFormat line as CSV and write to file pointer

Description

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

fputcsv() formats a line (passed as a fields array) as CSV and write it (terminated by a newline) to the specified file handle.

Parameters

handle

The file pointer must be valid, and must point to a file successfully opened by fopen() or fsockopen() (and not yet closed by fclose()).

fields

An array of values.

delimiter

The optional delimiter parameter sets the field delimiter (one character only).

enclosure

The optional enclosure parameter sets the field enclosure (one character only).

Return Values

Returns the length of the written string or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example #1 fputcsv() example

<?php

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

$fp fopen('file.csv''w');

foreach (
$list as $fields) {
    
fputcsv($fp$fields);
}

fclose($fp);
?>

The above example will write the following to file.csv:

aaa,bbb,ccc,dddd
123,456,789
"""aaa""","""bbb"""

Notes

Note: If PHP is not properly recognizing the line endings when reading files either on or created by a Macintosh computer, enabling the auto_detect_line_endings run-time configuration option may help resolve the problem.
