Definition: The addslashes function is used to add in backslashes [\] to data submitted from your forms. This keeps the input MySQL (and other coding languages) friendly. What this means is that addslashes would change I'm hungry into I\'m hungry.
It is phrased as: addslashes($string_data)
Also Known As: Add Slashes
This would output the string: Hello, I\'m Billy
<?php $greeting = "Hello, I'm Billy"; print addslashes($greeting); ?>
This would output the string: Who said \"Live long and prosper\"?
<?php $said = 'Who said "Live long and prosper"?'; print addslashes($said); ?>
