Description:
------------
It would be nice if it would be possible to get the underlying resource handle of an SplFileObject to be able to add stream filters on the file. Sadly the URI parser in PHP seems to be broken and URIs with filters like php://filter/read=convert.iconv.ISO-8859-15/UTF-8/resource=... cannot be used (encoding the slash doesn't work either (%2F)) therefore it would be nice if one could access the underlying resource handle f.e. by providing a protected $fp in SplFileObject one could use in a child class then and do the stream_filter_append() there.

add a protected member function to SplFileObject so that extending classes can have more control of the file handle... patch included against php5.2.6..

What's the status of this bug?  SplFileObject is supposed to be an OO version of fopen but it's quite useless to pass into other functions like curl when those functions expect a resource.

Example:

$splFileObject = new SplFileObject('/tmp/foo', 'r');
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'sftp://server.com/folder/');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_UPLOAD, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_INFILE, $splFileObject); # <-- won't work, must be file resource
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_INFILESIZE, filesize($localfile));
curl_exec ($ch);
curl_close($ch);

I don't see why this method shouldn't be public. I vote for extending its 
visibility to public.
 [2012-12-12 16:12 UTC] mattsch at gmail dot com
I agree that this method should also be public.  Please implement this method ASAP.
 [2013-12-04 13:05 UTC] drgomesp at gmail dot com
Any updates on this? It would be really useful to change the visibility of this method to public.
