When gzip encoded input is used to post form data, the variables are lost.

The example code expects a form.php which simply does a print_r() on $_POST.

It's assumed that the zlib functionality is available.

Reproduce code:

echo file_get_contents(
			'header'=>"Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\nContent-Encoding: gzip",


Expected result:
A print_r() output of an array where the key 'data' is set to 'somebigvalue'

Actual result:
A print_r() of an empty array.

This is not a bug, why would you assume that is *supposed* to work? You can create a feature request though.

Fair enough, in that case I'll change it to the following request:

Add support for compressed posted data.

Background: some asp scripts make the assumption that this is a normal thing to support; I'm not sure whether any browser actually supports this feature, but it seems to be a valid request.
