As the summary says, fgetcsv does not allow escaped quotes. When csv fields come from user input, it is often the case that addslashes() is run on them then enclosed in quotes. However, fgetcsv() removes anything after the escaped quote.

Code:

<?php
/* make a csv file */
$fp = fopen('csv_file', 'w+');
$fields = array();

$fields[0] = '"' . addslashes('This is "Field One"') . '"';
$fields[1] = 'field two';
$fields[2] = 'field three';
fwrite($fp, implode(',', $fields));

/* start all over */
fseek($fp, 0);
var_dump(fgetcsv($fp, 4096));
?>

Outputs:
array(3) {
  [0]=>
  string(9) "This is \"
  [1]=>
  string(9) "field two"
  [2]=>
  string(11) "field three"
}

The behavior I expected would have been for the first field to read:
"This is \"Field One\""

Much like the functionality described on <http://rath.ca/Misc/Perl_CSV/CSV-2.0.html#csv specification>.

Thanks
