What does an '@' in a php file string mean?
I am having trouble googling this, so please bear with me.
I have a code example that is about uploading files and there is the assignment of a temporary file to an array like this:
$postparam['file1'] = '@../res/example.pdf';
I would like to know what the effect of the @ character is. I know about error suppression with @ but i am confused about the use inside the string.
I found the answer: The example uses cURL and that is why the @ is required as a prefix to the filename.
@filename This will make curl load data from the given file (including any newlines), URL-encode that data and pass it on in the POST.
