bool openssl_pkcs7_sign ( string infilename, string outfilename, mixed signcert, mixed privkey, array headers [, int flags [, string extracerts]] )

outfilename
signcert
privkey
headers

headers is an array of headers that will be prepended to the data after it has been signed (see openssl_pkcs7_encrypt() for more information about the format of this parameter.

flags

flags can be used to alter the output - see PKCS7 constants - if not specified, it defaults to PKCS7_DETACHED.

extracerts

extracerts specifies the name of a file containing a bunch of extra certificates to include in the signature which can for example be used to help the recipient to verify the certificate that you used.
