Parameters

Examples

Example #1 highlight_string() example

<?php
highlight_string
('<?php phpinfo(); ?>');
?>

The above example will output (in PHP 4):

 <code><font color="#000000"> <font color="#0000BB">&lt;?php phpinfo</font><font color="#007700">(); </font><font color="#0000BB">?&gt;</font> </font> </code> 

The above example will output (in PHP 5):

 <code><span style="color: #000000"> <span style="color: #0000BB">&lt;?php phpinfo</span><span style="color: #007700">(); </span><span style="color: #0000BB">?&gt;</span> </span> </code> 

Notes

Note:

When the return parameter is used, this function uses internal output buffering so it can not be used inside an ob_start() callback function.
