    I am working on a site in which i need it to print text from a file to a form. Right now i am using the include function. Main problem with this is, i want the ability to edit php code in a the box, and with include, the code is processed. I am wondering if there is a way to print the text from a file, ignoring all php code so i get the whole thing in the text area. Whatever size fits your website layout. Just don't make it too high pushing the main contents down the page. []( [Outsourcing software development](

    Hi Peter, welcome to developerFusion! All three languages contain methods for reading text from a file... so whichever language you choose, you could do this. For example, in PHP you could do something like this: which would spit the contents of the file out (including any server-side markup) Hope that helps!

    Greets Peter, and welcome. I'm a newcomer here myself, but I guess that's picking between asp, php and jsp and wondering which is best would be a pain in the a$$ for any coder, cause basically, they're all the same. Just use what you like most. I use php. Regards.
