Then, run these lines of code:
include("AdValify.php"); $AdValify = new AdValify(); $result_tag = $AdValify->scanTag("This is an ad tag..."); $result_zip = $AdValify->scanZip("Binary Zip data here..."); $result_vast = $AdValify->scanVAST("URL pointing to VAST document...");
The result will be an array, which you can use further down in your logic. Check out the complete API Documentation for a list of all data points collected by the scanner.
