PHP has built in support for various types of network streams, such as HTTP and TCP sockets. One problem that arises with them is the fact that a single fread/fwrite call might not read/write all the data you intended, regardless of whether you're in blocking mode or not. While the PHP manual offers a workaround in the form of a loop with a few variables, using it every single time you want to read/write can be tedious.

This package abstracts this away, so that when you want to get exactly N amount of bytes, you can be sure the upper levels of your app will be dealing with N bytes. Oh, and the functionality is nicely wrapped in an object (but that's just the icing on the cake).

Release Notes - 1.0.0a2

Lots of reorganization and initial test suite.

  • Renamed all "SocketTransmitter" classes to "Tcp".
  • Added test suite with nearly complete code coverage. Remaining coverage is due to forward compatibility issues.
  • Added FilterCollection, in turn allowing for the same filter to be applied more than once.
  • Added NetworkStream, and made Tcp* classes inherit from it. This new class contains a new method called shutdown().
  • IPv6 addresses must now be written literally, without the surrounding "[" and "]".
  • TcpServerConnection can now accept IPv6 connections.
  • Merged sendStream() into send().
  • Added $offset and $length to send().
  • Removed redundant error variables in TcpServerConnection.
  • Removed the TcpServerConnection::isServer() function (can't tell apart server and client).
