i have found that socket_get_status will say that an EOF has occurred but feof() says otherwise (and the socket isn't disconnected). feof() seems to be working fine.
im using pfsockopen() to create the socket.

also, im seeing 0 bytes unread until i attempt reading once, then the correct number of bytes remaining are listed. 

this may be unrelated but once i have read all of the bytes remaining, i get a EOF (detected by feof() and the connection is toast after that point). it could be a bug somewhere in my scripts logic.. but who knows.

After further working with this, I have found that even if I keep all of my code within one script and never fclose() I'm still getting disconnected after all the data is read. I'm pretty sure that this is not related to my code. I verified via telnet that the server I'm connecting to does not close the connection.

Can you try with latest RC and see if it works
