fputs — Writes to a file.


bool fputs(file_handle, data[, bytes]);
resource file_handle: File handle
string data: String to be written
int bytes (optional): Number of bytes to write


TRUE on success; FALSE on error


fputs() writes the data given in data to the specified file. The optional bytes argument denotes the maximum number of bytes to be written to the file (useful if you don't want to dump all of the data contained in the data string). This function is an alias for fwrite() and thus is binary-safe. This means that both binary data (such as an image), and character data can be written with this function.

Note that in the original C libraries fputs() is meant for writing textual data only; thus, using fputs() for binary data is considered bad style.


Because some of the filesystem functions to read/write from files partially share the same code, one or more of the bugs reported elsewhere may also apply to this function.

3.0.6: Not binary-safe.


Example 324. Write a string to a file

$string = "Hello World!\n";
$file = "test.txt";

$fh = fopen($file, "w");
fputs($fh, $string);

echo ("Wrote \"$string\" to file $file");
