Here's a quick debugging technique to capture your output and email it to yourself. This can be useful when you cannot send your debug output to the browser.


<?php
// start output buffer
ob_start();

// display the contents of your variable
print_r($YOURVARIABLE);

// get the contents of the output buffer
$ob = ob_get_contents();

// stop output buffer
ob_end_clean();

// mail contents of output buffer to yourself
mail('YOUREMAIL','Output Buffer Contents',$ob);
?>
