escaping get request in php

I am looking to send some information with the Get request but when I read the variable in PHP it is all encoded. I have been trying to locate the function that uncodes this. Anyone know this off the top of their head?

rawurldecode() and urldecode()

The difference (as far as I can see) is that if spaces have been encoded as +, you will need urldecode().

rawurldecode("foo%20bar") == "foo bar"
urldecode("foo+bar") == "foo bar"

If in doubt, urldecode() is probably the one to use.

To encode URLs, of course, use rawurlencode() or urlencode() as appropriate.
