(PHP 4, PHP 5)

get_magic_quotes_gpcGets the current configuration setting of magic_quotes_gpc


int get_magic_quotes_gpc ( void )

Returns the current configuration setting of magic_quotes_gpc

Keep in mind that attempting to set magic_quotes_gpc at runtime will not work.

For more information about magic_quotes, see this security section.

Return Values

Returns 0 if magic_quotes_gpc is off, 1 otherwise.


Example #1 get_magic_quotes_gpc() example

echo get_magic_quotes_gpc();         // 1
echo $_POST['lastname'];             // O\'reilly
echo addslashes($_POST['lastname']); // O\\\'reilly

if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {
$lastname stripslashes($_POST['lastname']);
else {
$lastname $_POST['lastname'];

// If using MySQL
$lastname mysql_real_escape_string($lastname);

$lastname// O\'reilly
$sql "INSERT INTO lastnames (lastname) VALUES ('$lastname')";



If the directive magic_quotes_sybase is ON it will completely override magic_quotes_gpc. So even when get_magic_quotes_gpc() returns TRUE neither double quotes, backslashes or NUL's will be escaped. Only single quotes will be escaped. In this case they'll look like: ''
