stream_get_line

(PHP 5)

stream_get_lineGets line from stream resource up to a given delimiter

Description

string stream_get_line ( resource $handle , int $length [, string $ending ] )

Gets a line from the given handle.

Reading ends when length bytes have been read, when the string specified by ending is found (which is not included in the return value), or on EOF (whichever comes first).

This function is nearly identical to fgets() except in that it allows end of line delimiters other than the standard \n, \r, and \r\n, and does not return the delimiter itself.

Parameters

handle

A valid file handle.

length

The number of bytes to read from the handle.

ending

An optional string delimiter.

Return Values

Returns a string of up to length bytes read from the file pointed to by handle.

If an error occurs, returns FALSE.
