How To Feed Out The Text With Carriage Returns In A <textarea>?

I get input from a <textarea>. If my visitor adds carriage returns, the script changes them into <br>'s before reading the input into a text file. But when I read the text file back into the <textarea> (so that my visitor can make revisions to the original without having to type the whole thing over), it's one long line--no carriage returns. Anybody know how to feed out the text with carriage returns in a <textarea>? What do I change the <br>'s back into? n doesn't work. rn doesn't work. ?

Carriage Returns

I've written a small questionnaire in PHP. Several questions are to be completed in a text box. All data enters ok, but when I retrive the results with the following:

$query = 'SELECT * INTO OUTFILE "C:inetpubintranet
esults'.$qnamed.''.$filenamedate.'.csv" fields terminated by "," lines terminated by "
" FROM '.$qnamed.''

I encounter a problem. If the user completing the questionnaire has started a new line in the text box, then the file starts a new line every time a user did. Since I want to put this straight into excel (hence the .csv) it completly destroys the structure. I have tried to adding $question1 = trim($question1); when they are completing the questionnaire but it hasn't helped.

Scanning For Carriage Returns?

What I am trying to do is take a list that is typed into a text box and turn it into an unordered HTML list on output. I think I can use a foreach loop to setup the <LI> part of the list, but I am not sure how to have it scan the string for carriage returns and have it repeat the loop using those. I already have it setup to accept the data from a text box, but not sure how to proceed beyond that.

Removing Carriage Returns In SQL?

I have a WYSIWYG editor for a PHP form that I want to store the data in a MSSQL database. When I save the data, it seems it likes to add carriage returns when storing the data in the database. WHen I go in to view the data the second time around using the WYSIWYG the page encounters a problem (I have debugged and figured it is because of the carriage returns).

So I would like to have my submit.php page take the value of the POST['solution'] and remove any carriage returns there may be, before submitting the data into the SQL database.

I have found SQL carriage returns are the ascii characters char(13) and char(10), but it seems that I can not get rid of them.

Carriage Returns On Html Code

I'm rather new to PHP, though not to web developing. I'm developing a dynamic site with PHP and I have a problem with the HTML output.

It looks like PHP is adding an extra carriage return for every line of code it outputs, which makes the layout to break down.

An example:

Carriage Returns In Strstr And Str_replace

I need to replace carriage returns with <br> in a string. The problem is that I don't know how to refer to the hex for carriage return within strstr or str_replace. What do I include in the code?

while ($myrow = mysql_fetch_array($result)){
if (strstr($myrow["text"],"?????")){
$myrow["text"] = str_replace("?????",'<br>',$myrow["text"]);

Mail() To Outlook, No Carriage Returns

I'm sending normal text email, but in Outlook all the carriage returns
are ignored. The text comes from MySQL database, and I've tried

", "
", $dr['email_template']);

I also tried sending header Content-type: text/plain but still no luck,
still the email comes through as one big line.

I'm sure this must be a common thing but I can't immediately find an
answer through Google.

Code And Linefeeds / Carriage Returns

would the following code arrangement cause any issues when calling mysql_connect, i.e.:

or die("Could not connect. " . mysql_error());

or does it need to be all on one line, i.e.:

Remove Carriage Returns From Output Of String?

I am using wordpress as a CMS and trying to allow user fields to be input to populate the info windows in a Google Map script. I am using this to select the id and pull in the content from a custom field.

It works fine unless there is any html in the custom-field which breaks the script.
I looked at htmlspcialchar and htmlentities but rather than strip everything out I would like to have it escaped so it still works and the html is intact. Any suggestions? I am pretty new to PHP and would really appreciate any pointers.

After a while I am still unable to find a great solution for this. TheDeadMedic suggested I use esc_js

but that printed all of the actual html code instead of rendering it. Something else I tried was to use the trim function.. this is where I am at now where it works as long as no in the output. The $snip string, mapExcerpt field is where the returns are coming from:

<?php $post_id = 207; // Wordpress Post ID
$my_post = get_post($post_id);
$mapTitle = $my_post->post_title;
$mapIMG = get_post_meta($post_id, 'mapImage', true);

Carriage Returns Or Line Breaks In Html?

Use nl2br()when displaying text that has carriage returns or line breaks in html, but when pulling from the DB and inserting the text into a textarea tag, the breaks and returns aren't being displayed.I know they're there, as I've not replaced them in any form.The only thing I worry about is that I have stripslashes() taking the escape character out, and it may be destroying the breaks.But it never displays an extra 'n' character at the end of what should be the paragraphs.Quote:This is some sample text and here comes a couple line breaks.This is some sample text.And here comes a couple line breaks.

Strip Tags - Keep The Carriage Returns/newlines

I am trying to take external content (text description) that could either be raw text, or HTML content - and assign it to a field that will be displayed on my website.

Since I want to present the data on my website, I want to strip the majaority of HTML tags, that control is font, colour, size, underlines etc.

I know that PHP provides strip_tags for this purpose.  The thing is, I want it to keep the carriage returns/newlines, and if possible bullet points - does anyone know how I can achieve this?

Print Variable From Form With Carriage Returns?

I'm sure there's a simple answer to this but I'm just stuck on it... I have a text box in an html form that the user will type several lines similar to this (text and associated number) into:

supraspinatus sprain-strain, 840.6
shoulder sprain-strain, 840.9

and when I pass the info to be processed via POST to my php, the variable that represents what was typed in is put all together and prints out like this:

supraspinatus sprain-strain, 840.6 shoulder sprain-strain, 840.9

How can I get it to print out as it was entered?

How To Remove (replace) Carriage Returns In Output Code..

Let's say I have a line of code in a MySQL table as following:

This is some text in a database table with a carriage
return in the middle of it!

Now, if I grab that code and echo it, the text will show up in the browser with no line break, which is fine. HOWEVER, if you look at the page source for that code, there is still the carriage return in the middle of the line. My question is, how can I remove that carriage return from the text in the source code.

Ignore Whitespace And Carriage Returns Within Text Using Regular Expressions?

Im quite new to stackoverflow so I dont know if this question has been asked before, but I cant seem to find any past questions which hint at the answer.

I have this text:

1282837200, -- [1]
"Type", -- [2]
"Name", -- [3]
"Reason", -- [4]
Amount, -- [5]
}, -- [1]
1282838220, -- [1]..........

Which I need to create a regular expression for and extract the necessary data. I understand how to extract data from source files using regular expressions within PHP, using source text which has no "whitespace" or carriage returns.

$poster = $_POST['poster'];
$either = $_POST['either'];
$name = $_POST['name'];
$affiliation = $_POST['affiliation'];
