Hello,
I would like to see a feature in PHP, that solves a problem I currently only can solve by writing a CGI script in Perl, which I'd rather not do...
I understand that when uploading a file (POST request) from a form, the file is stored at a temporary location on the server. However, I want to read file data in small chunks, passing each chunk along to another server, i.e. "stream" the file data through my server. Is this anything that would be interesting to introduce in PHP, or is it already possible and I'm making a fool of myself? :-)
Btw, the key issue here is that I want to make it possible to send a file that is 1 Gb (or some other large value) in size to my server, that only has 200 Mb (less than the file size) of free space...

Best regards,
Per J?nsson
