(PHP 3, PHP 4, PHP 5)stripslashes -- Un-quote string quoted with addslashes()
Returns a string with backslashes stripped off. (\' becomes ' and so on.) Double backslashes (\\) are made into a single backslash (\).
Note: If magic_quotes_sybase is on, no backslashes are stripped off but two apostrophes are replaced by one instead.
An example use of stripslashes() is when the PHP directive magic_quotes_gpc is on (it's on by default), and you aren't inserting this data into a place (such as a database) that requires escaping. For example, if you're simply outputting data straight from an HTML form.
Note: stripslashes() is not recursive. If you want to apply this function to a mutli-dimensional array, you need to use a recursive function.
Example 2. Using stripslashes() on an array
The above example will output:
