int gzwrite(resource $zp, string $string[, int $length])
gzwrite() writes the contents of
string to the given gz-file.
Returns the number of (uncompressed) bytes written to the given gz-file stream.
- resource $zp: The gz-file pointer. It must be valid, and must point to a file successfully opened by gzopen().
- string $string: The string to write.
- int $length: The number of uncompressed bytes to write. If supplied, writing will stop after
length(uncompressed) bytes have been written or the end of
stringis reached, whichever comes first.
Note that if the
lengthargument is given, then the magic_quotes_runtime configuration option will be ignored and no slashes will be stripped from
Example #1 gzwrite() example
$string = 'Some information to compress';
$gz = gzopen('somefile.gz','w9');
- Note that if the length argument is given, then the magic_quotes_runtime configuration option will be ignored and no slashes will be stripped from string.
