When I try to use this code on a php page it picks up <?php in the script thinking im going to use some php. How can I work around this? If you want the link to the page PM me for it. This script sends the following info to a textarea.

Code:
<script language="JavaScript">

/* Create the dataset and write to textarea */
function build_it_functions(form) {

/# Primary Variable */
functionsWizard=""
functionsWizard += "<?php\n\n"
functionsWizard += "// FILENAME: FUNCTIONS.INC.PHP\n"
functionsWizard += "function send_error_email( $error_code='Undefined' )\n\n"
functionsWizard += "{\n"
functionsWizard += " // set the TO: email address\n"
functionsWizard += " $to = '" + form.mailAddress.value + "';\n\n"
functionsWizard += " // set the SUBJECT: e-mail\n"
functionsWizard += " $subject = \"An error has occured - type: $error_code\";\n\n"
functionsWizard += " // set the MESSAGE: e-mail\n"
functionsWizard += " $message = \"The following error has occured:\\r\\n\"\n\n"
functionsWizard += " .\"--------------------------------\\r\\n\\r\\n\"\n"
functionsWizard += " .\" Type: $error_code\\r\\n\"\n"
functionsWizard += " .\" Page: {$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']}{$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']}\\r\\n\"\n"
functionsWizard += " .\" Time: \".date('d/m/Y H:i:s').\"\\r\\n\"\n"
functionsWizard += " .\" From IP: {$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']}\\r\\n\\r\\n\"\n"
functionsWizard += " .\"Regards,\\r\\n\"\n"
functionsWizard += " .\"Your hard-working web server.\";\n\n"
functionsWizard += " $headers = \"From: [email protected]{$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']}\\n\"\n"
functionsWizard += " .\"Reply-To: [email protected]{$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']}\\n\"\n"
functionsWizard += " .\"X-Mailer: PHP/\".phpversion();\n\n"
functionsWizard += " // send the email\n"
functionsWizard += " mail( $to, $subject, $message, $headers );\n"
functionsWizard += "}\n\n"
functionsWizard += "?>"

/* Build It */
document.functionsWizard1.bundle_it_functions.value='<!-- Generator Coded by\: WWW\.************\.COM\, Script by *** -->\n<!-- Begin PHP Code -->\n\n' + functionsWizard + '\n<!-- End PHP Code -->'

}
</script>

What about just using the ascii values? Here's the ascii table for HTML.. http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_asciiref.asp

ie: <?php =
Code:<?php


Since I don't use PHP I'm not sure if that will prevent the PHP engine from seeing the tag, but I think there's a good chance.

And I suspect the string won't display properly in this post.

Ah. As i thought, even in [ code ] tags this page is converting the ascii values, which means I can't post the code string. Just get the values from the above link.

If that doesn't work, well since these (php-powered) pages display "<?php" just fine, Craven de Kere (web master here) should be able to give you the inside scoop. Smile

First of all let's see if we can take the easy way out. Does the page you are running that script on use php elsewhere? If not rename that page to an .html extention and you are all set.

If that is not acceptable I'll get back to you.

Right now I am using GZip, so I need php on the page, also, once I finish the Login script on the left, it will require php as well...

I know it works on html pages, its just the fact I want to keep my site as much php oriented as I can.

So, any ideas on it?

Well, would you consider using straight php? There are workarounds for your method but you might as well get it right.

What is the script? Form to mail?

It is form to textarea. Sent the link to your PM.

I would use straight php, but I am not experienced enough with it.

Then why not use the ascii?

Remove the spaces:

Code:& # 6 0 ; ?php

Ok, I'm going out and I'll tackle this when I get home drunk. It's always easier to solve that way. Drunk

Ok, I did a bit of research because I figured there had to be another way. But I don't think there is.

You'll need to use ASCii for the "<"s and then replace them later with something like this:

Code:$text = str_replace(array(">", "<"), array(">", "<"), $text);

Anywho I really need to go get somethin' to drink but that should put you on the right track.

I can tell you right now it'd be a lot easier to just leave the script on an html page. Even if you IFRAME the html page in a php page. That would mean a lot less trouble.

As it stands you'll have to almost rewrite the script.

BTW, the above is a PHP example but it'd make more sense to use javascript I think.

OR, you could just use the escape character in Javascript which is "\", and write the line like:

functionsWizard += "\<\?php\n\n"

I tested it, and it works fine.

Jason I tried that are you sure it works with the script? Maybe I used teh wrong slash (I did it quickly) but I don't think so.
