  Any reason why getimagesize couldn't be extended to accept image data in string format such as:

array getimagesize (string $filename | string $string [, array &$imageinfo])

  This would be very handy for pulling image info from data stored in cache (such as APC) or BLOB data from a database without first converting with imagecreatefromstring() -> temp file -> getimagesize($temp_file).

  I see BUG #25507 but no example is given on how to achieve it. It seems to me that the binary data in the string variable is already in the format needed. 

  I'm actually on PHP version 5.1.6 (ubuntu linux) as per phpinfo().

Thank you for your time,
Norman Peelman

Ok, I found the example for using streams with variables and it works just fine with getimagesize but, I still think it would be easy enough for getimagesize to simply work on the string variable should the attempt to open a filename fails.

As of PHP 5.4.0 there is getimagesizefromstring() which makes this
