There are a few problems with opening of files
via http right now. First is that most web servers
are tuned to handle the new 4.0 browsers.  If they
don't see the right browser they throw bad files 
at you.  If they don't see the right referer string,
they also throw bad files at you.  If they don't see
the right cookie yet again they throw bad files at
you.  Stop this craziness!

So when requesting a file. 
There needs to be more options.

HTTP_USER_AGENT:
HTTP_CONNECTION:
HTTP_ACCEPT: 
HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE:
HTTP_COOKIE: 
HTTP_REFERER:

Or to create your own tags.

The ability set or add these prior to any connection 
would help!

I am badly in need of setting these options. Can some
tell me, is it a possibility of adding these options
into PHP?

I can set these options with APIs in Windows, 
but I am trying to use UNIX here.

Please Help,

Mr. Westerdal

Unlikely to happen.  If you need that level of control simply fsockopen() directly to port 80 and send whatever headers are required.  The url capabilities are just a convenience shorthand way to do a full fsockopen().
