(PHP 4, PHP 5)
stripslashes — Un-quotes a quoted string
string stripslashes ( string $str )
Un-quotes a quoted string.
An example use of stripslashes() is when the PHP directive magic_quotes_gpc is on (it's on by default), and you aren't inserting this data into a place (such as a database) that requires escaping. For example, if you're simply outputting data straight from an HTML form.
Returns a string with backslashes stripped off. (\' becomes ' and so on.) Double backslashes (\\) are made into a single backslash (\).
Example #1 A stripslashes() example
Example #2 Using stripslashes() on an array
The above example will output:
Array (  => f'oo  => b'ar  => Array (  => fo'o  => b'ar ) )
