error occured only in PHP compiled as a module on WIn95,98
php from default win installation, no changes in php.ini
tested on many computers

problem occured while inserting images (binary data into database). Functional script under OS LINUX don't work, because process of importing a binary data (for example gif
image) is stopped when PHP detect some 'special' character.
the same thing happend while trying to open binary data with file functions

good code /tested on Linux and on cgi version of php under win/

 create database pokus;
create table pokus(pole blob);

insert.php - it doesnt import whole image!

$subor = "b.gif"; 
$fp = fopen($subor, "r"); 
$data = addslashes(fread($fp, filesize($subor))); 
$data = "insert into pokus values ('$data')"; 
$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "root"); 
$vysledok = mysql_db_query("pokus", $data); 

script for showing image

Header("Content-type: image/gif"); 
$conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "root"); 
$vysledok = mysql_db_query("pokus", "select * from pokus"); 
$z = mysql_fetch_array($vysledok); 
echo $z[pole];

If you want binary safety within Windows, you have
to tell it to open the file in such mode.

$fp = fopen($subor, "rb");
