Analog of file_get_contents function?

Hello all!
I'm newbie in C. I have experience only with PHP.

Is there something like PHP-file_get_contents function?

Re: Analog of file_get_contents function?

Well, not exactly as nice as PHP's function, but you could do something like this

Note, though, in that example [and others], that freeing the allocated memory is missing, so don't forget that step!

Also, handling large files, such as 2G+ could be an issue. I'm not sure how the PHP function handles the large file size situation? The PHP docs don't have any specific mention on limitation, but this doesn't mean that it's unlimited.
Use the the source!!
