When retrieving BLOB data from a DB2 LUW 9.7.1 database using this extension, I receive a resource back. When I try to use such a resource with stream_get_contents(), PHP segfaults. This happens with PHP 5.2.12 in Windows XP, PHP 5.1.6 on CentOS 5 and PHP 5.3.1 on Fedora 12.

When retrieve CLOB data from the SYSCAT.CHECKS catalog view, and trying to use stream_get_contents(), on CentOS 5 with 5.1.6, I get a blank string. With 5.2.12 on Windows and 5.3.1 on Fedora, PHP segfaults.

The columns can be retrieved using the ibm_db2 extension without issues on all platforms, and the pdo_odbc extension in Windows.

Expected result:
I should be able to retrieve a string of character or binary data from the resource.

Actual result:
Either a segmentation fault or a blank string.

PHP code is:


using a PDO::fetchAll retrieving the data.

Ironically using PDO::fetch, no segfaulting behaviour is occuring.

I will analyze the issue and will update you.

I've found that even using fetch() causes the issue, if I try 
to get the stream content after I've fetched all of the rows. 
I don't know if fetching just one more row causes it, or if it 
is because I am exhausting the cursor.

I worked around this by preemptively decoding all resources as 
I am looping over the returned rows.

Any progress on this? I have the same problem on php 5.5.11 and pdo ibm 1.3.3

Is this still an issue with any of the actively supported PHP
versions[1], or do you get an empty string now, like reported in
bug #81495?
