PHP Manual :: tidy::parseFile

tidy::isXml || tidy::parseString || tidy || PHP Manual

(PHP 5, PHP 7, PECL tidy >= 0.5.2)

tidy::parseFile -- tidy_parse_fileParse markup in file or URI


Object oriented style

bool tidy::parseFile ( string $filename [, mixed $config [, string $encoding [, bool $use_include_path = false ]]] )

Procedural style

tidy tidy_parse_file ( string $filename [, mixed $config [, string $encoding [, bool $use_include_path = false ]]] )

Parses the given file.



If the filename parameter is given, this function will also read that file and initialize the object with the file, acting like tidy_parse_file().


The config config can be passed either as an array or as a string. If a string is passed, it is interpreted as the name of the configuration file, otherwise, it is interpreted as the options themselves.

For an explanation about each option, see »


The encoding parameter sets the encoding for input/output documents. The possible values for encoding are: ascii, latin0, latin1, raw, utf8, iso2022, mac, win1252, ibm858, utf16, utf16le, utf16be, big5, and shiftjis.


Search for the file in the include_path.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.


Example #1 tidy::parseFile() example

"The following errors or warnings occurred:\n";


Note: The optional parameters config and encoding were added in Tidy 2.0.
