I'am trying to fetch data with fsockopen and etc.
from URL

And as result in variable named $Data i have a compressed
gzip data from that url with "Content-encoding: gzip".

But! When i try to 
the php returns
Warning: gzuncompress(): data error 

Warning: gzinflate(): data error 

I'm try to do following:

$fp = fopen("gzipped","w");
fwrite($fp, $Data, strlen($Data));

$buffer = "";
$gzfp = gzopen("gzipped","r");
while (!gzeof($gzfp)) {
 $buffer .= gzread($gzfp, 1024);

And as result i have normal UNCOMPRESSED data 
in varaiable named $buffer.

Why gzuncompress do not uncompress $Data while
gzopen do this success?

Is this a bug?

the gzuncompress() function expects to decompress the header-less data generated by gzcompress().

The workaround is to write to a temp file and read it in, or you could just cut-off the gzip header and try gzuncompress. (the header is usually 10 bytes in length, so gzuncompress(substr($Data,10)) might work).

It looks like you need the opposite of gzencode(), which can will correctly deal with this.
