Firstly I love PHP,
Secondly there isn't much it can't do that I want to do

It would be nice if it could do everything that ASP can do (or everything that is possible - given that it shouldn't have to do Microsoft BS)

In particular in ASP you can get the Raw request header (using a function called Request.BinaryRead) 

I have not been able to find a way of doing this in PHP. Indeed I got quite hopeful when I found the getallheaders function - but this turned out to return another associative array. 

Please can we have just the raw text - for cases when poorly written responders don't output correctly.

Thanks again

What exactly cannot be accomplished with getallheaders() as it is now? 
 [2002-06-01 10:36 UTC] php at it-solutions dot org
Ok - as I understand it - getallheaders returns the headers in an associative array - however if the headers are not formed properly (such as those where a return type is not specified) it isn't always possible to break them down into an array. It would be nice to be able to retrieve the headers in a 'raw' format so that the programmer could then parse and analyze them himself.

This is web-server dependant, and at least with Apache there is no clean way to get this information.

Like Rasmus noted some ages ago, there is no clean way to provide this information, however if a patch comes up that can unify this, I'm sure it can find its way to the core
