while running php as an apache module (not cgi-mode) the filesystem functions of php fread and fpassthrough are not reading the complete file. it skips reading after a number of bytes.

i'm not an apache crack that's why i can't say if this belongs to my apache distro (1.3.12) or not. but i don't think so.

running in cgi-mode will avoid this problem.

You propably missed the 'b' in your fopen()  call?

ie. you should use this in Windows:

$fp = fopen ("/home/rasmus/file.gif", "rb");

instead of just 'r'.

hi jani - that is another way to solve the problem.

in documentation, it's said, that fread is binary safe. so this is a documentation problem.

for the people programming the software it might be good to know, that it only happens in the apache module, not in the cgi-mode.

thanks for your comments.

Fixed in documentation CVS. I added an note into fread() docs about
the fact that file must be opened with 'b' on Windows.
