Constructs a new tidy object ()
tidy tidy::__construct ( [string filename [, mixed config [, string encoding [, bool use_include_path]]]] )

tidy::__construct() constructs a new tidy object.

If the filename parameter is given, this function will also read that file and initialize the object with the file, acting like tidy_parse_file().

The config parameter can be passed either as an array or as a string. If you pass it as a string, it means the name of the configuration file, otherwise it is interpreted as the options themselves. Check » for an explanation about each option.

The encoding parameter sets the encoding for input/output documents. The possible values for encoding are: ascii, latin0, latin1, raw, utf8, iso2022, mac, win1252, ibm858, utf16, utf16le, utf16be, big5 and shiftjis.

Example 2538. tidy::__construct() example


= <<< HTML

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<p>paragraph <bt />


$tidy = new tidy;


if (
$tidy->errorBuffer) {
"The following errors were detected:\n";


The above example will output:

The following errors were detected:
line 8 column 14 - Error: <bt> is not recognized!
line 8 column 14 - Warning: discarding unexpected <bt>
