Only getting partial file, need full


This used to work ok, for some reason now I only get part of the file being read.  Not sure if something in this code doesn't work with the newer php update or what?  I need the full page read, and adjusting the size on fread doesn't seem to make a difference.

Code:

<?
$fileloc = "http://www.andrews.com/index.html";
$fp = fopen($fileloc,"r");
$content = fread($fp, 200000);
echo $content;
?>

echo $content only returns a small portion of page, not full page.  I need the whole page read.

Thanks for any assistance :)

hi,

$content = fread($fp, 200000);

this line means read the first 200kb of the file and that's it. if the file is on a remote server, you want something more like:

<?
$fileloc = "http://www.andrews.com/index.html";
$fp = fopen($fileloc,"rb");
$content = "";
do {
    $data = fread($fp, 8192);
    if (strlen($data) == 0) {
        break;
    }
    $content .= $data;
} while(true);
echo $content;
fclose ($fp);
?>

but if it's a local file, you can just use:

<?
$fileloc = "http://www.andrews.com/index.html";
$fp = fopen($fileloc,"rb");
$content = fread ($fp, filesize ($fileloc));
echo $content;
fclose ($fp);
?>

you may need to reference a local file in a relative way to be able to use the filesize function though

If you're using php >= 4.3 then use
file_get_contents($fileloc)
as that will give you the best performance, and will always return the complete file.

Thank you, I tried both and the file_get_contents has worked best :)
