gzgetss — Returns a string with HTML tags stripped out from a compressed file with the specified length - 1.


string gzgetss(zp, length[, allowable_tags]);
int zp: File pointer
int length: Number bytes to get
string allowable_tags (optional): Tags not to be stripped


A string with HTML tags stripped out on success or FALSE on failure


It actually strips out any tags that start with "<" and end with ">". It returns a string of specified length -1 or a string ending in a newline, which ever comes first. If the string plus the tag is greater than the specified length - 1, only the "<" and up to the specified length - 1 gets stripped. This function is a combination of gzgets() and strip_tags().


PHP 3, PHP 4 >= 4.0b1

//Strip out the tags and print the results

while (!gzeof($gz)) {
  echo gzgetss($gz,20) . '<BR>';
