(PHP 4 >= 4.0.4, PHP 5)

ctype_print -- Check for printable character(s)

Description

bool ctype_print ( string text)

Returns TRUE if every character in text will actually create output (including blanks). Returns FALSE if text contains control characters or characters that do not have any output or control function at all.

Example 1. A ctype_print() example

<?php
$strings
= array('string1' => "asdf\n\r\t", 'string2' => 'arf12', 'string3' => 'LKA#@%.54');
foreach (
$strings as $name => $testcase) {
    if (
ctype_print($testcase)) {
        echo
"The string '$name' consists of all printable characters.\n";
    } else {
        echo
"The string '$name' does not consist of all printable characters.\n";
    }
}
?>

This example will output :

The string 'string1' does not consist of all printable characters.
The string 'string2' consists of all printable characters.
The string 'string3' consists of all printable characters.
