fputcsv() formats a line (passed as a fields array) as CSV and write it (terminated by a newline) to the specified file handle.

Parameters

handle

The file pointer must be valid, and must point to a file successfully opened by fopen() or fsockopen() (and not yet closed by fclose()).

fields

An array of values.

delimiter

The optional delimiter parameter sets the field delimiter (one character only). Defaults as a comma: ,.

enclosure

The optional enclosure parameter sets the field enclosure (one character only) and defaults to a double quotation mark: ".

Return Values

Examples

Example 642. fputcsv() example

<?php

$list
= array (
   
'aaa,bbb,ccc,dddd',
   
'123,456,789',
   
'"aaa","bbb"'
);

$fp = fopen('file.csv', 'w');

foreach (
$list as $line) {
   
fputcsv($fp, split(',', $line));
}

fclose($fp);
?>


Notes

Note:

If you are having problems with PHP not recognizing the line endings when reading files either on or created by a Macintosh computer, you might want to enable the auto_detect_line_endings run-time configuration option.
