PHP - bzip2 Functions


Advertisements

The bzip2 functions can be used to transparently read and write bzip2 (.bz2) compressed files.

The Bzip2 module can use the functions of the bzip2 library by Julian Seward. This module can require bzip2/libbzip2 version >= 1.0.x.

Bzip2 can support in PHP is not enabled by default. We need to use them --with-bz2[=DIR] configuration option when compiling PHP to enable bzip2 support.

Example

<?php
   $filename = "/tmp/testfile.bz2";
   $str = "This is a test string.\n";
   $bz = bzopen($filename, "w");
   bzwrite($bz, $str);
   bzclose($bz);
   $bz = bzopen($filename, "r");
   echo bzread($bz, 10);
   echo bzread($bz);
   bzclose($bz);
?>
