PHP && GET Method, sending variables?


Recommended Posts

I have this script which I will post below.. the problem is that the following script only works with number..


when I use this script the error.txt will only write numbers and if I send text like... ?trueId=hey  nothing happens


but ?trueId=1 works just fine.. heres the script



$handle = fopen('error.txt', 'r+');
$trueId = $_GET[trueId];
$nextLine = false;
$realText = false;
while(!feof($handle) && $realText != $trueId)
  $nextLine = fgets($handle);
  $realText = $nextLine + "\n";
if($realText != $trueId){
$break = "\n";
$text = $trueId;
fwrite($handle, $break);
fwrite($handle, $text);


THANK YOU! Appreciate the help!

You should also have quotes around that array index. It will throw an undefined constant warning if you have your error reporting turned up high enough.



I never knew you were supposed to do quotes around that, I never really considered the GET/POST methods to be array indexs, good thing to know, appreciate it!!!
