removed code now no email are being produced(web Order Confirmatoin)

I have a small script that was wriiten before I arrived and have been asked to remove some information from our order confirmation.
I found that if I comment out certain line it will change the order confirmation, but when I remove almost all the line, for some reason the email seems to stop being genereated.

here is a piece of the code:

 public function getContactStringPlain() {
        $str = "  ";
        //"BIOTONE Professional Massage and Spa Therapy Products\n".
          //  "4757 Old Cliffs Rd,\r".
           // "San Diego, CA 92120, USA\r\n";
            //"Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm, PST\r\n\r\n".
            //"Toll Free: 800.445.6457\n".
            //"Local: (619) 582-0027\r".
            //"Email: customerservice@biotone.com\r\n\r\n".
            //"Online: www.biotone.com";
        return $str;
    } //end function getContactStringPlain

Will commenting this out change how a email is generated, I may have a situation that is just slow...I just received a email order confirmation and it looks as if the coding is working.
How ever please verify if I commented this code out correctly?

OK, it works....I tried to remove the entire statement and the coding will fail.

Because it's a function, it's being called elsewhere in the code so if you just delete it without also deleting the call to it, the whole script will die.  Commenting out the output of the function gets you to where you want to be, albeit in a less-than-graceful fashion.  

I placed your code in a code block above.  Look at line 22.

       $str = $this->getContactStringPlain();

That's the call to the function you want to remove.  If you remove that, you don't need to comment out the function itself...it just never gets used.

Greeeeat!!!
 I learned again something new...I appreciated you showing me.  This is very helpful in helping me to work on coding.  I am a 1 man shop and do everything from Network, to coding, to database admin, to telephones, business application solution provider and a lot more.  
Sometime all I need is pointed in the right direction!
I've be doing this a long time(25 years) and technology changes, all I try to do is keep up as a  ADMIN who wears just about any type of hat!

Just verify I understand this correctly, when I see a URL...
..https://www.biotone.com/checkout.php?proc=billing
in this statement I am looking for a Procedure call "Billing" that is in the Checkuot.php program?

Jason C. LevineNo oneCommented:
Not necessararily.

That's called a query string the (?proc=billing part).  In your code, you want to look for something that handles the $_GET array, specifically the proc part.  Will look like this:

$_GET['proc']

And be part of a conditional (if) statement.  The code in the conditional will point you to the functions.

Thank you again, I have a better understanding of the use.  All I see is this used as a HREF, I am unable to find a GET statement.
it is used in a html statment in the program.
html.= "<a  href=\"/checkout.php?proc=billing/">change billing address</a<br/>".
Thi sis in the Checkout.php program.
