bzopen

(4.0.4 - 4.3.2 only)

bzopen -- Open a bzip2 compressed file

Description

resource bzopen ( string filename, string mode)

Opens a bzip2 (.bz2) file for reading or writing. filename is the name of the file to open. mode is similar to the fopen() function (`r' for read, `w' for write, etc.).

If the open fails, the function returns FALSE, otherwise it returns a pointer to the newly opened file.

Example 1. bzopen() Example

<?php
$bz = bzopen("/tmp/foo.bz2", "r");

$decompressed_file = '';
while (!feof($bz)) {
    $decompressed_file .= bzread($bz, 4096);
}
bzclose($bz);

print( "The contents of /tmp/foo.bz2 are: " );
print( "\n<br>\n" );
print( $decompressed_file );
 ?>
