PHP Manual


pg_escape_string

(PHP 4 >= 4.2.0, PHP 5)

pg_escape_string Escape a string for query

Description

string pg_escape_string ([ resource $connection ], string $data )

pg_escape_string() escapes a string for querying the database. It returns an escaped string in the PostgreSQL format without quotes. pg_escape_literal() is more preferred way to escape SQL parameters for PostgreSQL. addslashes() must not be used with PostgreSQL. If the type of the column is bytea, pg_escape_bytea() must be used instead. pg_escape_identifier() must be used to escape identifiers (e.g. table names, field names)

Note:

This function requires PostgreSQL 7.2 or later.

Parameters

connection

PostgreSQL database connection resource. When connection is not present, the default connection is used. The default connection is the last connection made by pg_connect() or pg_pconnect().

data

A string containing text to be escaped.

Return Values

A string containing the escaped data.

Changelog

Version Description
5.2.0 connection added
