resource bzopen(mixed $file, string $mode)
bzopen() opens a bzip2 (.bz2) file for reading or writing.
If the open fails, bzopen() returns
FALSE, otherwise it returns a pointer to the newly opened file.
- mixed $file: The name of the file to open, or an existing stream resource.
- string $mode: The modes 'r' (read), and 'w' (write) are supported. Everything else will cause bzopen() to return
Example #1 bzopen() example
$file = "/tmp/foo.bz2";
$bz = bzopen($file, "r") or die("Couldn't open $file for reading");
