Problem with file get contents

Hi guys,

I'm experiencing a strange problem working with the file_get_contents function :

If I enter directly the URL, it's working fine :

$data = file_get_contents("http://www.domain.com/image.ashx?1234");

But, if I put the URL into a variable, it's not working anymore :

$url = "http://www.domain.com/image.ashx?1234";
$data = file_get_contents($url);

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for your help.

It works just the way it is.

Do you get an error?

Have you tried:

$data = file_get_contents(urlencode($url));

Perhaps the "?" is causing the problem.

Hope this helps,
