functions.php – what does this code do?

  • Hi there,

    I am updating a site for someone and in functions.php I found this code that doesn’t appear to do anything. Can anyone tell me it’s purpose?


    function get_data($url){
    $ch = curl_init();
    $timeout = 5;
    curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_URL,$url);
    curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
    curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT,$timeout);
    $data = curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    return $data;
    }

    Many thanks,
    Fiona
