Description:
------------
If im trying to use the function gzfile() to a compressed file, that
includes just a picture, the function don't read the complete file. On
this reproduce, the function stops after the End Transmission Block.

Reproduce code:
---------------
$file=fopen("smiley1.gif","rb");
$picture=fread($file,filesize("smiley1.gif"));
fclose($file);
$file=gzopen("smiley1.gz","w");
gzwrite($file,$picture);
gzclose($file);
$file=gzfile("smiley1.gz");
print_r($file);

Expected result:
----------------
I expect to see all arrays until the end of the file.

Actual result:
--------------
With gzfile, i got just the array [0] with the content GIF89a

Couldn't reproduce on Win XP SP2 with php-5.2.6-Win32.zip

I used this picture for the example:

http://img501.imageshack.us/img501/7006/smiley1dr6.gif


Maybe it helps you to reproduce the problem. But this was not the only picture with that I can reproduce the problem.

Im able to re-produce this on Windows XP SP2 using the image you supplied aswell as with other files would return odd strings

I tested it with the 5.2.7RC2-dev and the 5.3.0alpha3-dev from your link, but the bug isn't fixed. In both versions, Firefox 3.0.3 gives me an output of:

Array
(
    [0] => GIF89a
)

It breaks again after the End Transmission Block. I used the same picture again.

What actually is the bug here? You're concatenating same image in same file and expect..what?
 [2008-10-30 17:15 UTC] jani@php.net
$file=gzopen("smiley1.gz","w");

I think that should also be "wb" under windows..

I tried it with wb, but it doesn't help.

The problem is, that gzfile stops the read process after 7/132 byte. The read process is breaking after gzfile reads the ETB (End Transmission Block), which is the seventh char of this picture.

gzfile() is not binary-safe. So the behaviour here isn't really unexpected. Anyway, you're better of using gzread() instead when dealing with binary files.
