I’d like to capture the output of
var_dump to a string.
The PHP documentation says;
As with anything that outputs its result directly to the browser, the output-control functions can be used to capture the output of this function, and save it in a string (for example).
What would be an example of how that might work?
print_r() isn’t a valid possibility, because it’s not going to give me the information that I need.
Use output buffering:
<?php ob_start(); var_dump($someVar); $result = ob_get_clean(); ?>
