PHP 7.4.24 Released!


(PHP 5, PHP 7, PECL tidy >= 0.5.2)

tidy::__constructConstructs a new tidy object


public tidy::__construct ( string|null $filename = null , array|string|null $config = null , string|null $encoding = null , bool $useIncludePath = false )

Constructs a new tidy object.



If the filename parameter is given, this function will also read that file and initialize the object with the file, acting like tidy_parse_file().


The config config can be passed either as an array or as a string. If a string is passed, it is interpreted as the name of the configuration file, otherwise, it is interpreted as the options themselves.

The encoding parameter sets the encoding for input/output documents. The possible values for encoding are: ascii, latin0, latin1, raw, utf8, iso2022, mac, win1252, ibm858, utf16, utf16le, utf16be, big5, and shiftjis.


Search for the file in the include_path.
