get_cfg_var -- Get the value of a PHP configuration option.


string get_cfg_var(string varname);

Returns the current value of the PHP configuration variable specified by varname, or false if an error occurs.

It will not return configuration information set when the PHP was compiled, or read from an Apache configuration file (using the php3_configuration_option directives).

To check whether the system is using a php3.ini file, try retrieving the value of the cfg_file_path configuration setting. If this is available, a php3.ini file is being used.
