I want to upload a json.gz file and uncompress it. How?

So I've got this:

<table class="center" border="0"><form enctype="multipart/form-data" action="json_csv_decompress.php" method="Post">
	<tr>
		<td width="100" height="10">
		JSON.gz file
		</td>
		<td>
		<input name="photo" type="file" size=33">
		</td>
	</tr>
	<tr>
		<td colspan="2" style="text-align:center;"><input type="submit" value="submit"></td>
	 </tr>
	</table></form>

Open in new window


and I know I've got to do this:

<?php
$compressed   = gzcompress('Compress me', 9);
$uncompressed = gzuncompress($compressed);
echo $uncompressed;
?>

How can I put those two things together so the user uploads a file and the uploaded file is automatically decompressed?

Just curious - what types of files are you uploading?

I really have little IDEA what you mean by this whole question, however from a previous question about JSON and CSV, here is some code to look at -

<html><head><title>GZIP to JSON</title></head><body><h3>GZIP to JSON</h3><?php
error_reporting(E_ALL); 
//$jss = '{"id":"tag:search.twitter.com,2005:389903668427763712","objectType":"activity","actor":{"objectType":"person","id":"id:twitter.com:91239297","link":"http://www.twitter.com/OGkush103","displayName":"WalkingLick74","postedTime":"2009-11-20T01:21:39.000Z","image":"https://si0.twimg.com/profile_images/378800000593715086/755411d8bdc495472c2d7ed50e319582_normal.jpeg","summary":"Self-Made, Self Paid.....

//$f = gzopen('jsonTest.gz', 'wb9');
//gzwrite($f, $jss);
//gzclose($f);
//echo 'Finished the GZIP !<br />';
//$f = fopen('jsonTest.gz', 'r' );
$f = gzopen('jsonTest.gz', "r");
$gzStr = gzread($f, 10000);
gzclose($f);
echo 'UNCOMPRESS ZGIP is below -<br />',$gzStr;
 ?><hr><?php
$csv = '';
$jsonArray = json_decode($gzStr,true);
if(!$jsonArray)
  $csv = 'ERROR!,ERROR!,ERROR!,ERROR!,ERROR!,ERROR!,ERROR!';
  else {
  if(isset($jsonArray['actor']['id'])) $csv .= $jsonArray['actor']['id'].',';
    else $csv .= 'ERROR!,';
  if(isset($jsonArray['actor']['displayName'])) $csv .= $jsonArray['actor']['displayName'].',';
    else $csv .= 'ERROR!,';
  if(isset($jsonArray['actor']['postedTime'])) $csv .= $jsonArray['actor']['postedTime'].',';
    else $csv .= 'ERROR!,';
  if(isset($jsonArray['generator']['displayName'])) $csv .= $jsonArray['generator']['displayName'].',';
    else $csv .= 'ERROR!,';
  if(isset($jsonArray['geo']['type'])) $csv .= $jsonArray['geo']['type'].',';
    else $csv .= 'ERROR!,';
  if(isset($jsonArray['geo']['coordinates'][0])) $csv .= $jsonArray['geo']['coordinates'][0].',';
    else $csv .= 'ERROR!,';
  if(isset($jsonArray['geo']['coordinates'][1])) $csv .= $jsonArray['geo']['coordinates'][1];
    else $csv .= 'ERROR!';
  }
echo 'The CSV string is - <br />',$csv,'<hr>';
?>
 </body></html>

BUT this has nothing to do with Uploading a file, this takes the compressed file, and uncompresses it and then does a json_decode( ) to then get some array parts from it as -
I need actor/id, actor/displayName, actor/postedTime, generator/displayName, geo/type, geo/coordinates/0, geo/coordinates/1

from your other Question

BE WARNED, I do NOT check for any COMMAS in the strings of the JSON, which will really muck it up if it has commas.

Thanks, Slick!

Since posting this question, the "uploading" thing isn't going to be an issue simply because the files are over a gig. But your code is helpful, because I will need to convert the uncompressed file into a CSV file, so you were smelling what I had on the stove!

Thanks!
