(PHP 4, PHP 5)

highlight_stringSyntax highlighting of a string

Description

mixed highlight_string ( string $str [, bool $return = false ] )

Outputs or returns a syntax highlighted version of the given PHP code using the colors defined in the built-in syntax highlighter for PHP.

Parameters

str

The PHP code to be highlighted. This should include the opening tag.

return

Set this parameter to TRUE to make this function return the highlighted code.

Return Values

If return is set to TRUE, returns the highlighted code as a string instead of printing it out. Otherwise, it will return TRUE on success, FALSE on failure.

Changelog

Version Description
4.2.0 The return parameter was added.

Examples

Example #1 highlight_string() example

<?php
highlight_string
('<?php phpinfo(); ?>');
?>

The above example will output (in PHP 4):

<code><font color="#000000">
<font color="#0000BB">&lt;?php phpinfo</font><font color="#007700">(); </font><font color="#0000BB">?&gt;</font>
</font>
</code>

The above example will output (in PHP 5):

<code><span style="color: #000000">
<span style="color: #0000BB">&lt;?php phpinfo</span><span style="color: #007700">(); </span><span style="color: #0000BB">?&gt;</span>
</span>
</code>

Notes

Note:

When the return parameter is used, this function uses internal output buffering so it can not be used inside an ob_start() callback function.
