Hi there,

I have already posted a similar question. The error i aim getting here is regarding the fgets function. I belive the code is  ok but i get the error: Warning: Wrong parameter count for fgets() in c:\apache\htdocs\test.php on line 15. Can you please test code and let me no how to fix error? I have pasted the code below:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<html>
<head>
<title>Read and display file content</title>
</head>
<body>

<?php
//header("Content-type: text/plain");
$fileName = "testReadFile.txt";
$file = fopen($fileName, "r") or exit("Unable to open file!");
while(!feof($file))  
{
  echo fgets($file). "<br />";
}

fclose($file);
?>

</body>
</html>

Speedy response is as always very much appreciated!

fgets does have a second parameter "length" :

from http://de3.php.net/fgets:
string fgets  ( resource $handle  [, int $length  ] )  

This second parameter has become optional (defaults to 1024 bytes) with PHP version 4.2.0.

what version of PHP are you using ?

I am using version php triad 2.2.1. I mean does the code seem right to you and is there any way to resolves this. Perhaps if the code was rewritten differently?

Hello,

This error is because of your PHP version.

Your PHP version is below 4.3.0.

Its works fine in PHP 5 upto PHP 4.3.0.

Until PHP 4.3.0, omitting it would assume 1024 as the line length.

so please do with

 echo fgets($file, $length);

Regards.
