Get contents of file
This is the same as PHP’s
file_get_contents() except that the arguments are simpler and it may be preferable to use this in ProcessWire for future cases where the file system may be
abstracted from the installation.
Available since version 3.0.167.
// basic usage $bool = $files->fileGetContents(string $filename); // usage with all arguments $bool = $files->fileGetContents(string $filename, int $offset = 0, int $maxlen = 0);
Full path and filename to read
The offset where the reading starts on the original stream. Negative offsets count from the end of the stream.
Maximum length of data read. The default is to read until end of file is reached.
Returns the read data (string) or boolean false on failure.
