mb_convert_variables

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.6, PHP 5)

mb_convert_variablesConvert character code in variable(s)

Description

string mb_convert_variables ( string $to_encoding , mixed $from_encoding , mixed &$vars [, mixed &$... ] )

Converts character encoding of variables vars in encoding from_encoding to encoding to_encoding.

mb_convert_variables() join strings in Array or Object to detect encoding, since encoding detection tends to fail for short strings. Therefore, it is impossible to mix encoding in single array or object.

Parameters

to_encoding

The encoding that the string is being converted to.

from_encoding

from_encoding is specified as an array or comma separated string, it tries to detect encoding from from-coding. When from_encoding is omitted, detect_order is used.

vars

vars is the reference to the variable being converted. String, Array and Object are accepted. mb_convert_variables() assumes all parameters have the same encoding.

...

Additional vars.

Return Values

The character encoding before conversion for success, or FALSE for failure.

Examples

Example #1 mb_convert_variables() example

<?php
/* Convert variables $post1, $post2 to internal encoding */
$interenc mb_internal_encoding();
$inputenc mb_convert_variables($interenc"ASCII,UTF-8,SJIS-win"$post1$post2);
?>
