The fprintf() function writes a formatted string to a specified stream resource.
(PHP 5 )
fprintf(file_handle, main_string, arg1, arg2, arg3... )
|file_handle||When a file is successfully opened by fopen() or fsockopen() it returns a resource ID, which is referred as file handler or file pointer.||Required||Resource|
|main_string|| Each conversion specification starts with a single percent sign (%) and ends with the following conversion characters.
% - returns a percent sign.
b - the argument is treated as an integer and display it as a binary number.
c - the argument is treated as an integer and display it as a ASCII value.
d - the argument is treated as an integer and display as a signed decimal number.
e - the argument is treated as scientific notation (e.g. 1.2e+2).
E - the argument treated as scientific notation (e.g.1.2E+2).
u - the argument is treated as an integer, and display as an unsigned decimal number.
f- the argument is treated as a float, and display as a floating-point number. (local aware)
F - the argument is treated as a float, and display as a floating-point number (non-locale aware).
g - shorter of %e and %f.
G - shorter of %E and %f.
o- the argument is treated as an integer, and display as an octal number.
s - the argument is treated as string and display as a string.
x - the argument is treated as an integer and display as a hexadecimal number (with lowercase letters).
X - the argument is treated as an integer and display as a hexadecimal number (with uppercase letters).
Optional specification :
Sign specifier : display a sign (+ or -) in front a number. By default a - sign is used in front of a number if it is negative.
Padding character :
Default character is space. An alternate padding character can be specified by prefixing it with a single quote.
Alignment specifier. : - character makes the alignment left-justified. The default is right justified.
Width specifier : An integer number specifies the width of the field.
Precision specifier : The argument specify how many decimal number should be displayed for floating numbers. When using this specifier on a string, it acts as a cutoff point, setting a maximum character limit to the string.
|arg1||The argument to be added as the first %-sign in the formatted string.||Required||Mixed*|
|arg2,arg3..||These arguments will added as second %, third % etc. in the formatted string.||Optional||Mixed*|
*Mixed : Mixed indicates that a parameter may accept multiple (but not necessarily all) types.
The length of the output string.
Value Type : Integer.
<?php $string1 = 'My Roll No. is :'; $roll_no = 22; $file_handler = fopen('testvf.txt','w'); fprintf($file_handler, '%s %u', $string1, $roll_no); fclose($file_handler);
// Let open the file once again and read the content. $file_name = 'testvf.txt';
$file_handler = fopen($file_name, 'r');
$file_data = fread($file_handler, 1024);
My Roll No. is : 22
