stripslashes

(PHP 3, PHP 4 )

stripslashes --  Un-quote string quoted with addslashes()

Description

string stripslashes ( string str)

Returns a string with backslashes stripped off. (\' becomes ' and so on.) Double backslashes (\\) are made into a single backslash (\).

An example use of stripslashes() is when the PHP directive magic_quotes_gpc is on (it's on by default), and you aren't inserting this data into a place (such as a database) that requires escaping. For example, if you're simply outputting data straight from an HTML form.

Example 1. A stripslashes() example

<?php
$str = "Is your name O\'reilly?";

// Outputs: Is your name O'reilly?
echo stripslashes($str);
 ?>

See also addslashes() and get_magic_quotes_gpc().
