Use the following function to strip the slashes in a php array recursively. It will be helpful when fetching and displaying a string data from mysql db sanitized by the mysql_real_escape_string() function.

function stripslashes_recursive($value)
$value = is_array($value) ?
array_map('stripslashes_deep', $value) :

return $value;

// Input
$array = array("f\'oo", "b\'ar", array("fo\'o", "b\'ar"));
$array = stripslashes_recursive($array);

// Output
// Print like $array = array("f'oo", "b'ar", array("fo'o", "b'ar"));
