ob_get_statusGet status of output buffers

Description

array ob_get_status ([ bool $full_status = FALSE ] )

ob_get_status() returns status information on either the top level output buffer or all active output buffer levels if full_status is set to TRUE.

Parameters

full_status

TRUE to return all active output buffer levels. If FALSE or not set, only the top level output buffer is returned.

Return Values

If called without the full_status parameter or with full_status = FALSE a simple array with the following elements is returned:

Array

    [type] => 0
    [status] => 0
    [name] => URL-Rewriter
    [del] => 1
