php escaping quotes

P: n/a
Hello

I've been trying to figure this problem out for quite a while and I'm
having no joy.
I'll give you some background info, I'm creating a form and one of the
fields in the form is a big text area that I want to use to write to
a text file. This works fine but the problem is all the single quotes
are get escaped with slashes.

I want to write to the text file with out the quotes getting escaped,
I've tried htmlentities but that doesn't seem to work.
Here is a snippet of the code.

$Desc_file = date("dmYHis");
$Desc_new = htmlentities($desc, ENT_QUOTES);
$filePath = "/public_html/nsite/info";
$WriteToFile = fopen("$filePath/$Desc_file","w+");
fwrite ($WriteToFile, $Desc_new);
fclose ($WriteToFile);

Any ideas would be fantastic Thanks in advance for your help

For christ's sake, how many times do people have to answer to your
previous two posts before you give up?????
