    PHP equivalent of response buffer true?

    Is there a php equivalent of the ASP: Response.Buffer = true
    (which causes all scripts to be executed before anything gets rendered to the page.)

    yup - thats it ...

    i.e. readfile($file) in PHP outputs the contents of file directly to screen & there is no normal way of manipulating its contents but you can use ob_start() & friends


    PHP Code:
    <?
    ob_start
    ();
    //can't normally get at the files contents (using readfile())
    readfile('yaks.txt');
    //so grab the contents of the buffer//
    $str ob_get_contents();
    //do something pointless to $str... because we can//
    $str=nl2br(strrev($str));
    ob_end_clean();
    echo 
    $str;
    ?>
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)
