get_meta_tags -- Extracts all meta tag content attributes from a file and returns an array


array get_meta_tags(string filename, int [use_include_path] );

Opens filename and parses it line by line for <meta> tags of the form

Example 1. Meta Tags Example

<meta name="author" content="name">
<meta name="tags" content="php3 documentation">
</head> <!-- parsing stops here -->
(pay attention to line endings - PHP uses a native function to parse the input, so a Mac file won't work on Unix).

The value of the name property becomes the key, the value of the content property becomes the value of the returned array, so you can easily use standard array functions to traverse it or access single values. Special characters in the value of the name property are substituted with '_', the rest is converted to lower case.

Setting use_include_path to 1 will result in PHP trying to open the file along the standard include path.
