(PHP 3, PHP 4 )

nl2br --  Inserts HTML line breaks before all newlines in a string

Description

string nl2br ( string string)

Returns string with '<br />' inserted before all newlines.

Note: Starting with PHP 4.0.5, nl2br() is now XHTML compliant. All versions before 4.0.5 will return string with '<br>' inserted before newlines instead of '<br />'.

<?php
echo nl2br("foo isn't\n bar");
 ?>

this will output :

foo isn't<br />
  bar
