Random php function question

Recommended Posts

To be honest, I can't remember if I dreamt this (dreaming about programming, such a life I have) or if it is real, but is there a function one can call to get the php code from a php file displayed in a browser...I know that you can't just save a php file and look at the code, it is all handled on the server end, but I either dreamt or read that there is a function that you can use to read the backend code for any file...and if this is so, is it only possible on localhost or can you check any url in cyberspace for it?

I apologize if i make no sense.

Thanks for your help...for some reason I thought there was a function that could get [i]any[/i] url and display it as code in a browser, thereby allowing one to see passwords to databases and the like. must have dreamt it. pretty pathetic. thanks again

yes i do...okay, atleast i was not dreaming...now a completely different question...do i need to be worried that i have a config file that has database username and password in it and people can read it using highlight_file()?
