bzopen -- Open a bzip2 compressed file
( string filename, string mode)
Opens a bzip2 (.bz2) file for reading or writing.
filename is the name of the file to
open. mode is similar to the
fopen() function (`r' for read, `w' for write, etc.).
If the open fails, the function returns FALSE, otherwise it
returns a pointer to the newly opened file.
Example 1. bzopen() Example
$bz = bzopen("/tmp/foo.bz2", "r");
$decompressed_file = bzread($bz, filesize("/tmp/foo.bz2"));
print( "The contents of /tmp/foo.bz2 are: " );
print( "\n<br>\n" );
print( $decompressed_file );
