gzopen

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

gzopenAbre un archivo gz

Descripción

resource gzopen ( string $filename , string $mode [, int $use_include_path = 0 ] )

Abre un archivo gzip (.gz) para lectura o escritura.

gzopen() se puede usar para leer un archivo el cual no esté en formato gzip; en este caso gzread() leerá directamente el archivo sin descomprimirlo.

Parámetros

filename

El nombre del archivo.

mode

Como en fopen() (rb o wb) pero también puede incluir un nivel de compresión (wb9) u una estrategia: f para datos filtrados como en wb6f, h para compresión Huffman solamente como en wb1h. (Ver la descripción de deflateInit2 en zlib.h para más información sobre el parámetro de estrategia.)

use_include_path

Se puede configurar este parámetro opcional en 1, si se desea buscar también el archivo en la ruta include_path.

Valores devueltos

Retorna un apuntador hacia el archivo abierto, después de eso, cualquier cosa que se lea desde este descriptor de archivo sera descomprimido de forma transparente y lo que se escriba será comprimido.

Si falla la apertura, la función retorna FALSE.

Ejemplos

Ejemplo #1 Ejemplo de gzopen()

<?php
$fp 
gzopen("/tmp/file.gz""r");
?>

gzopen("php://output","wb") doesn't work on a web server, nor does fopen("compress.zlib://php://output","wb").

Here is a snippet to gzip a file and output it on the fly, without using a temporary file, without reading the file into memory, and without reading the file more than once:

<?php
$fin
= fopen($file, "rb");
if (
$fin !== FALSE) {
   
$fout = fopen("php://output", "wb");
    if (
$fout !== FALSE) {
   
// write gzip header
   
fwrite($fout, "\x1F\x8B\x08\x08".pack("V", filemtime($file))."\0\xFF", 10);
   
// write the original file name
   
$oname = str_replace("\0", "", basename($file));
   
fwrite($fout, $oname."\0", 1+strlen($oname));
   
// add the deflate filter using default compression level
   
$fltr = stream_filter_append($fout, "zlib.deflate", STREAM_FILTER_WRITE, -1);
   
// set up the CRC32 hashing context
   
$hctx = hash_init("crc32b");
   
// turn off the time limit
   
if (!ini_get("safe_mode")) set_time_limit(0);
   
$con = TRUE;
   
$fsize = 0;
    while ((
$con !== FALSE) && !feof($fin)) {
       
// deflate works best with buffers >32K
       
$con = fread($fin, 64 * 1024);
        if (
$con !== FALSE) {
       
hash_update($hctx, $con);
       
$clen = strlen($con);
       
$fsize += $clen;
       
fwrite($fout, $con, $clen);
        }
    }
   
// remove the deflate filter
   
stream_filter_remove($fltr);
   
// write the CRC32 value
    // hash_final is a string, not an integer
   
$crc = hash_final($hctx, TRUE);
   
// need to reverse the hash_final string so it's little endian
   
fwrite($fout, $crc[3].$crc[2].$crc[1].$crc[0], 4);
   
// write the original uncompressed file size
   
fwrite($fout, pack("V", $fsize), 4);
   
fclose($fout);
    }
   
fclose($fin);
}
?>

RE dubious's comment: "Being able to read gzip streams from ftp and http is near the top of my personal wishlist at the moment..."

One way to read a gzip stream over http is to daisychain stream wrappers, e.g.:

<?
$fp = fopen("compress.zlib://http://some.website.org/example.gz", "r");
?>

This worked unstable for me under high load (50+ files per second):

<?php
    $gz
= gzopen ( $file, 'w9' );
   
gzwrite ( $gz, $content );
   
gzclose ( $gz );
?>

The following works fine:

<?php
    $f
= fopen ( $file, 'w' );
   
fwrite ( $f, gzcompress ( $content, 9 ) );
   
fclose ( $f );
?>

WARNING gzopen and gzread have a major disadvantage. They makes NO checksum and NO length verification of the gzipped data and discard this valuable information. This should be documented here.

dtorop932 at hotmail dot com's comments, according to my tests, is incorrect. That code wishes to download the entire file before parsing, which is inconvinient. The wget method works though.

Be aware that when opening a remote file on a http server the gzopen will return by default false after 120 seconds waiting to any answer.

"On the fly" gunzipping actually DOES seem to work - it just appears that only LOCAL streams/files (including php://stdin) can be accessed for some reason.  I THINK (but have not yet tested) that you could similarly gzopen "php://stdout" and pass a stream of gzipped data to the browser (when run from a web page) or console (when run standalone) through there.

I HAVE tested scripts from the command line like:

wget -q -O- ftp://some.host.net/pub/some_gzip_file.gz | php gunzip_stuff.php

where gunzip_stuff.php would be a script that gzopened "php://stdin" and did gzgets from that stream, and it seems to work fine, but that obviously doesn't help someone wanting to grab gzipped streams from remote sites from a web-based script.

Being able to read gzip streams from ftp and http is near the top of my personal wishlist at the moment...
