php header to cause a download

Recommended Posts

I have a script that takes query data and dynamically formats it into " .rtf " syntax.

Currently what I have been doing is just fwrite() 'ing a file to disk then allowing the user to download the file. What I want to do is just send some custom " content-type: " headers to the browser and cause a download.

Even after reading the manual I can't get it right. Anyone know how to do it?

P.S ( I would be streaming an "application/msword" mime)

Have a look here. It might help. Just scroll down to the section about downloading files. Not sure if its much help. [a href=\"http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=31047&st=15&p=157705&#entry157705\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.phpfreaks.com/forums/index.php?...05&#entry157705[/a]
