The filename ViewHelper strips the Bigace root directory from an absolute filename. This is useful to prevent information disclosure. Just pass a filename (like a log stacktrace) and you can be sure that no path information are leaked.

-> Since BIGACE 3.0

  • $url - (required, string) The $url is the (absolute) filename that should be cleaned.


This example assumes that Bigace is installed in "/var/www/bigace/":


  echo "Filename: " . $this->filename('/var/www/bigace/library/Bigace/Bigace_Hooks.php');


would result in the output:

Filename: library/Bigace/Bigace_Hooks.php
