What is PhpDig?
PhpDig is a PHP MySQL based
Web Spider & Search Engine.



fclose — Closes a file.


bool fclose(file_handle);
resource file_handle:


TRUE on success; FALSE on error


Closes a file opened by fopen() or fsockopen() . Closing a file handle ensures that any buffered data is written to the file. This behavior can be the cause of relatively subtle bugs when working with files.


3.0.6, 3.0.11: Doesn't seem to close TCP sockets on Linux, already reported with 3.0.6.

3.0.7: May cause PHP to crash on Red Hat Linux 5.2.


Example 304. Open and close a file

$fh = fopen ("test.txt", "r");
fclose ($fh);
