PHP getallheaders(): Get All Headers

The PHP getallheaders() function is used when we need to fetch all HTTP request headers. For example:

   $headers = getallheaders();
   foreach ($headers as $key => $value)
      echo "$key: $value";
      echo "<BR>";

The output of the above PHP example on the getallheaders() function is:

sec-ch-ua: " Not A;Brand";v="99", "Chromium";v="100", "Google Chrome";v="100"

The above example can also be written in this way:

   foreach(getallheaders() as $key => $value)
      echo "<b>", $key, "</b>: ", $value, "<BR>";

Now the output should be:

You can also show the information of all HTTP headers in the form of a table using the following PHP script:

   echo "<table><tr>";
   echo "<th>Name</th>";
   echo "<th>Value</th>";
   echo "</tr>";
   foreach(getallheaders() as $key => $value)
      echo "<tr>";
      echo "<td>", $key, "</td>";
      echo "<td>", $value, "</td>";
      echo "</tr>";
