PHP ob_end_clean

PHP original manual for ob_end_clean [ show | ]


(PHP 4, PHP 5)

ob_end_cleanClean (erase) the output buffer and turn off output buffering


bool ob_end_clean ( void )

This function discards the contents of the topmost output buffer and turns off this output buffering. If you want to further process the buffer's contents you have to call ob_get_contents() before ob_end_clean() as the buffer contents are discarded when ob_end_clean() is called.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure. Reasons for failure are first that you called the function without an active buffer or that for some reason a buffer could not be deleted (possible for special buffer).


If the function fails it generates an E_NOTICE.


Version Description
4.2.0 The boolean return value was added.


The following example shows an easy way to get rid of all output buffers:
