Un-quotes a quoted string.
If magic_quotes_sybase is on, no backslashes are stripped off but two apostrophes are replaced by one instead.
An example use of stripslashes() is when the PHP directive magic_quotes_gpc is on (it was on by default before PHP 5.4), and you aren’t inserting this data into a place (such as a database) that requires escaping. For example, if you’re simply outputting data straight from an HTML form.
