stream_get_contents

(PHP 5, PHP 7)

stream_get_contentsReads remainder of a stream into a string

Description

string stream_get_contents ( resource $handle [, int $maxlength = -1 [, int $offset = -1 ]] )

Identical to file_get_contents(), except that stream_get_contents() operates on an already open stream resource and returns the remaining contents in a string, up to maxlength bytes and starting at the specified offset.

Parameters

handle (resource)

A stream resource (e.g. returned from fopen())

maxlength (integer)

The maximum bytes to read. Defaults to -1 (read all the remaining buffer).

offset (integer)

Seek to the specified offset before reading. If this number is negative, no seeking will occur and reading will start from the current position.

Return Values

Returns a string or FALSE on failure.

Changelog

Version Description
5.1.0 The offset was added.
