I would like to print an array to a file.
I would like the file to look exactly similar like how a code like this looks.
print_r ($abc); assuming $abc is an array.
Is there any one lines solution for this rather than regular for each look.
P.S – I currently use serialize but i want to make the files readable as readability is quite hard with serialized arrays.
$b = array ( 'm' => 'monkey', 'foo' => 'bar', 'x' => array ('x', 'y', 'z')); $results = print_r($b, true); // $results now contains output from print_r
You can then save
file_put_contents. Or return it directly when writing to file:
file_put_contents('filename.txt', print_r($b, true));
