Hi, I am trying to make this sukah that will open a specified file, read the contents of it and print it to the screen. The thing of it is I want all the data in text printed to the screen.
For example, I tell it to open somthing.html and when it prints to the screen it prints the actual compiled html... not the text of html but it worked kind of as a link. I hope you fallow.
Any how I was wondering if there is a way to force it to print in text?
All help is apreciated.
HERE IS A SAMPLE OF THE WAY I WAS DOING THIS. (unsucsesfully)
sorry if the code is hard to read... i couldnt figure white space out.
# path to the file
$whattoread = fopen($file_loc, "r");
# opens the file for reading
# puts contents of whole file in to varaible
# closes file
print "$file_contents"; }}
