PHP MySQL: escaping all special characters

Recommended Posts


I am sure this must have been discussed many times before, but I could not get much info upon searching.

I am writing simple scripts to Add / Delete / Modify records in MySQL.

Special characters like single quotes, double quotes, back slash, front slash, dollar etc cause a havoc when interacting with MySQL.

What is the best way to handles these characters (and other characters which I have missed above) such that they are displayed correctly when viewing, adding & modifying records.

All suggestions / examples / pointers are thanked in advance.
