Description:
------------
When I read a stream line by line with the function fgets, this function seems to interprete the two characters "\" followed by "n" as the "\n" (end of line) character.
My problem is that I attemp to read a shell script which contains these two characters but I would like that fgets don't transform these into the control character "\n".

Reproduce code:
---------------
$str = fgets($this->stream)

Expected result:
----------------
Only on line (ex: echo "abc\ndef")

Actual result:
--------------
Two lines:
echo "abc
def"

Don't use fgets() then, use fread().
