Here’s a function that can get the mime type of a remote file. It will also follow any redirects that are in place.


function get_url_mime_type($url)
{

$ch = curl_init($url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_NOBODY, 1);
curl_exec($ch);
return curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE);

}

Today I will show simple, but simetimes very usefull example, how to remove empty paragrapth from your text.

My code:

<?php
$html = "abc<p></p><p>dd</p><b>non-empty</b>";

I recently had a hard drive go bad on me which actually turned out to be a hard drive going bad. There was definitely something goofy going on with access to the drive. I keep daily backups but a perfect backup of a corrupted source is no good. My most important files are my digital photos, mostly JPG images. I did some visual spot checking but once I hit the 1500 photos I looked for a better alternative. Here’s what I came up with. (This works on Linux. You’ll have to alter your process on Windows and Macs but the principles are the same.)
