File_Fortune::getAll() – Retrieve all fortunes from the current file


require_once 'File/Fortune.php';

array File_Fortune::getAll ( )


getAll() can be used to pull the entire fortune database into an array. Typically this is a bad idea as fortune files are often very large. If you wish to do some processing with each fortune, use the File_Fortune object as an iterator:

foreach ($fortunes as $fortune) {
// do something with the fortune

Note: you can use getAll() when a directory or multiple files have been set; in such a context, it will return all fortunes in all files.


throws no exceptions thrown


This function can not be called statically.
