Recommended Posts

hi experts,


Can you please help me finding what wrong i am doing in the following code? The rss.txt file is created, but totally blank. I can see the last message "Done".


$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,
$fp = fopen('rss.txt', 'w');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FILE, $fp);
curl_exec ($ch);
curl_close ($ch);
echo "done";


I am using freehostia for my hosting and its phpinfo shows following info abour CURL


cURL support 	enabled
cURL Information 	libcurl/7.11.2 OpenSSL/0.9.7e ipv6 zlib/1.2.2

I am sorry, its my first attempt for using curl ... i tried many tutorials, but it seems Greek to me still :(


Anyway, i thought the following line will write inside the file. If not, can you suggest me how to dload the content of the source text file to the target, any link suggested please?


curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FILE, $fp);
