The fpassthru() function reads all data from the current position in an open file, until EOF, and writes the result to the output buffer.
This function returns the number of characters passed or FALSE on failure.
|file||Required. Specifies the open file or resource to read from|
Note: When using fpassthru() on a binary file on Windows, remember to open the file in binary mode.
Tip: Call rewind() to set the file pointer to the beginning of the file if you have already written to the file.
Tip: If you just want to dump the contents of a file to the output buffer, without first modifying it, use the readfile() function instead.
The output of the code above could be:
59 indicates the number of characters passed.
