From manual page:

php.ini configuration:

allow_url_fopen = On
allow_url_include = Off
default_socket_timeout = 60
;auto_detect_line_endings = Off

Test script:
php -r 'ini_set("default_socket_timeout", -1); echo file_get_contents("");'

Expected result:
print the html of google page.

Actual result:
PHP Warning:  file_get_contents( failed to open stream: 
Operation now in progress in Command line code on line 1
PHP Stack trace:
PHP   1. {main}() Command line code:0
PHP   2. file_get_contents() Command line code:1

This appears to only be an issue on Macs. When using it on Windows / Linux it performs as expected.

It is reproducible on Linux (Centos 6.9/CloudLinux). I need set it to -1 because Redis:brpoplpush timeout each minute (The default socket timeout value is 60 secs), but file_get_contents fail with file_get_contents(): SSL: Handshake timed out, file_get_contents(): Failed to enable crypto, file_get_contents(https://someExampledomain.tld): failed to open stream: operation failed. I have to set ['http' => ['timeout' => 10]] via stream_context_create to make it works.
Tested in PHP 7.2.7
