Php function to format the input values before inserting to the Db tables

Given below is a simple php function to format the input to the database inorder to avoid the SQL injection.

function formatInput($str_value){
//function to format strings in a query
$str_value = (!get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? addslashes($str_value) : $str_value;
$str_value = trim($str_value);
$str_value = ($str_value != "") ? "'" . $str_value . "'" : "NULL";
return $str_value;

As you can see the function checks whether the magic quote feature of server is on and if not it adds slashes to the single and double quotes. If magic quotes is on the input value t the function will be having the single and double quotes escaped with a backslah.

before returning the value, single quotes are appended and prepending to the text.


$myQry=" SELECT * FROM TBL_INVENTORY WHERE PURCHASE_CODE = ".formatInput($purchase_code);
