First, you don't have to write your own function to remove slashes.  Simply
$newline = stripslashes($oldline);

Second, write your lien containing slashes to the database.  When you pull
it from the database, use stripslashes().

Subject: [PHP-DB] Dealing with Quotation marks

Does anyone know how to deal with this problem? If a user enters in a text
box; O'Connor's 2" x 3" When you print it out on the next web page it reads;
O\'Connor\'s 2\" x 3\" I have written a function to take care of this, but
when you try to write it to the database you get an error of unmatched
quotation marks. Is there a function to handle this? Any help would be

Thanks, Gary
