PHP: Remove header data (strip_header) function

This is a simple function I have used numerous times to simplify the process of stripping the header data which is normally found at the top of most web server requests and responses. I normally use this function if I am working with fsockopen and need to remove the response header before processing the response.

 * Strips header data from provided data
 * By Shane Rutter (
function strip_header($data){
	return substr($data, strpos($data,"\r\n\r\n")+4);
