get magic quotes gpc function

get_magic_quotes_gpc — Gets the current configuration setting of magic_quotes_gpc


bool get_magic_quotes_gpc ( void )

Returns the current configuration setting of magic_quotes_gpc

Keep in mind that attempting to set magic_quotes_gpc at runtime will not work.

Returns 0 if magic_quotes_gpc is off, 1 otherwise. Or always returns FALSE as of PHP 5

		  		    // this is work in database so you can try it with data base otherwise error will be show in
		  			//every time
					// If magic quotes are enabled
					echo $_POST['lastname'];             // O\'reilly
					echo addslashes($_POST['lastname']); // O\\\'reilly

					// Usage across all PHP versions
					if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {
					    $lastname = stripslashes($_POST['lastname']);
					else {
					    $lastname = $_POST['lastname'];

					// If using MySQL
					$lastname = mysql_real_escape_string($lastname);

					echo $lastname; // O\'reilly
					$sql = "INSERT INTO lastnames (lastname) VALUES ('$lastname')";

Note:If the directive magic_quotes_sybase is ON it will completely override magic_quotes_gpc. So even when get_magic_quotes_gpc() returns TRUE neither double quotes, backslashes or NUL's will be escaped. Only single quotes will be escaped. In this case they'll look like: ''

 Warning This feature has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0 and REMOVED as of PHP 5.4.0.
