streamWrapper::stream_eofTests for end-of-file on a file pointer


public bool streamWrapper::stream_eof ( void )

This method is called in response to feof().


This function has no parameters.

Return Values

Should return TRUE if the read/write position is at the end of the stream and if no more data is available to be read, or FALSE otherwise.



When reading the whole file (for example, with file_get_contents()), PHP will call streamWrapper::stream_read followed by streamWrapper::stream_eof in a loop but as long as streamWrapper::stream_read returns a non-empty string, the return value of streamWrapper::stream_eof is ignored.
