stream_set_write_bufferSets write file buffering on the given stream


int stream_set_write_buffer ( resource $stream , int $buffer )

Sets the buffering for write operations on the given stream to buffer bytes.

Output using fwrite() is normally buffered at 8K. This means that if there are two processes wanting to write to the same output stream (a file), each is paused after 8K of data to allow the other to write.

Elenco dei parametri


The file pointer.


The number of bytes to buffer. If buffer is 0 then write operations are unbuffered. This ensures that all writes with fwrite() are completed before other processes are allowed to write to that output stream.

Valori restituiti

Returns 0 on success, or EOF if the request cannot be honored.
