stream_set_blocking — Set blocking/non-blocking mode on a stream
Sets blocking or non-blocking mode on a stream.
This function works for any stream that supports non-blocking mode (currently, regular files and socket streams).
If mode is 0, the given stream will be switched to non-blocking mode, and if 1, it will be switched to blocking mode. This affects calls like fgets() and fread() that read from the stream. In non-blocking mode an fgets() call will always return right away while in blocking mode it will wait for data to become available on the stream.
Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
|4.3.0||Prior to PHP 4.3.0, this function only worked on socket based streams.|
- stream_select() - Runs the equivalent of the select() system call on the given arrays of streams with a timeout specified by tv_sec and tv_usec
