 [2008-09-08 14:33 UTC] mike at silverorange dot com
Description:
------------
The stream_select function should return the number of streams ready in the read and write arrays. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't.

Reproduce code:
---------------
http://labs.silverorange.com/files/stream-select-bug/

Expected result:
----------------
selecting ... got 2
Array (     [0] => Resource id #5 ) 
Array (     [0] => Resource id #6 ) 
selecting ... got 2
Array (     [0] => Resource id #5 ) 
Array (     [0] => Resource id #6 )

Actual result:
--------------
selecting ... got 2
Array (     [0] => Resource id #5 ) 
Array (     [0] => Resource id #6 ) 
selecting ... got 1
Array (     [0] => Resource id #5 ) 
Array (     [0] => Resource id #6 )

The test also fails on the provided snapshot.

If I use 8192 as the number of bytes for fread(), the correct value is returned. Examining the program with strace() reveals:

 - PHP always reads 8192 bytes from fread
 - the requested bytes are returned and the remaining bytes are buffered
 - stream_select() only invokes a system select() call if the internal buffer is empty
 - stream_select() returns the wrong value if no actual system select() call is performed.

See additional test cases at the above link.
