Hello World
ENDEMAIL;


// A REGULAR EXPRESSION TO FIND THE FROM-EMAIL ADDRESS
$regex

. 'From:'     // LITERAL STRING
. '.*?'       // ANYTHING OR NOTHING
. '\<'        // ESCAPED WICKET
. '(.*?)'     // GROUP OF CHARACTERS WITH EMAIL ADDRESS
. '\>'        // ESCAPED WICKET

;

// A DATE PATTERN THAT WILL CREATE ISO-8601 FORMAT
$datep = 'Y_m_d_H_i_s_';

// ISOLATE THE FROM EMAIL ADDRESS
$from = preg_match($regex, $email, $matches);

// REMOVE DOTS
$from = str_replace('.', '_', $matches[1]);

// REMOVE @-SIGN
$from = str_replace('@', '_AT_', $from);

// PREFIX DATETIME AND SUFFIX FILE TYPE
$file = date($datep) . $from . '.txt';


// WRITE THE FILE
//file_put_contents($file, $email);
//echo "FILE: <b>$file</b> WRITTEN";

Open in new window


hostgator shared hosting


file_put_contents($file, $email);

when this line is uncommented I get an warning in the gmail


PHP Warning:  file_put_contents(2013_01_13_20_42_01_ray_paseur_AT_gmail_com.txt): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /folder/pipe.php

even though the file is written


I want to suppress the writing of warning because gmail sends me a failure email back

you can supress the message by adding an @ as a prefix of your function

@file_put_contents($file, $email);

Open in new window

I'm very surprised that the file is written if you are getting that message. Are you absolutely 100% certain that the file is being written?

@
suppresses the warning and the gmail error email


the file is not being written: when I use a pipe (via email)
but gets written when I run file in browser

you are both correct

the pipe required me to write the entire file path

and

@
hides the warning (which does not exist now)

thanks
