 [2010-01-27 09:28 UTC] info at netzkontrast dot com
I tried the following code with different PHP-versions (5.3.1 + 5.2.8) on different Systems (one ubunto-box and a suse-box

i'm totaly stuck, is there anything i'm missing?

-- i have prepared some testscripts 
- streamContent.php (used for testoutput)
- streamfiletest.php -> not working
- streamSocketTest.php -> not working
- streamFsockTest.php -> working

Reproduce code:
<?php    // streamfiletest.php
$filename = "/home/tests/myfile.txt";
$handle = fopen($filename, "r");
stream_set_blocking($handle, 0);
$metadata = stream_get_meta_data($handle);
var_dump($metadata['blocked']) // should return 0     ?>

<?php // streamContent.php
for($i = 10;$i;--$i) {
    echo ". ";
    if (ob_get_contents())ob_flush();flush();usleep(1000000);  
}     ?>

<?php //streamSocketTest.php 
$handle = fopen("http://localhost/streamContent.php", "r");
stream_set_blocking($handle, 0); 
while(!feof($handle)) {
    echo  fread($handle, 100);
       echo "-";usleep(80000); 
}   ?>

<?php // streamFsockTest.php 
$handle = fsockopen("localhost", 80);
stream_set_blocking($handle, 0);
fputs($handle, "GET /streamcontent.php HTTP/1.0\r\nHost: mp.devel\r\nConnection: keep-alive\r\n\r\n");
while(!feof($handle)) {
    echo  fgets($handle, 10);
       echo "-";usleep(80000); 

Expected result:
streamfiletest.php: 0
streamSocketTest.php: . -----------. ------------. (etc..)
streamFsockTest.php: . -----------. ------------. (etc..)

Actual result:
streamfiletest.php: 1
streamSocketTest.php: . -. -. -
streamFsockTest.php: . -----------. ------------.

there is a typo in streamFsockTest.php 

instead of: fputs($handle, "GET /streamcontent.php HTTP/1.0\r\nHost: mp.devel\r\nConnection: keep-alive\r\n\r\n");

it should be:
fputs($handle, "GET /streamcontent.php HTTP/1.0\r\nHost: localhost\r\nConnection: keep-alive\r\n\r\n");

fopen is still blocking with 

local files ('wrapper_type' => string 'plainfile'
and URL's 'wrapper_type' => string 'cURL'

looks like stream_set_blocking gets totaly ignored from fopen

while non_blocking reads still work with fsockopen, and reading from STDIN

i think it's interesting to mention that stream_set_blocking($stream, 0) returns true...

i did poke around a bit in streamsfuncs.c on line 1321 (and plain_wrapper.c line 559ff) - and if i'm interpreting it correct. returning truly means that the o_NONBLOCK-flag gets correctly set at the corresponding open-command. 

right now i'm not sure were to look next. Think i need to read a lot more code ,-)

(On Linux) O_NONBLOCK is generally ignored for regular files (except when used with mandatory file locking).
