Ticket #8674 added support to the HTTP API, but it used the PHP 6 only function gzdecode in a few places. Included is a basic patch to use the gzdeflate (PHP 4.0.4+) function instead.

Is gzuncompress the right thing to use instead of gzdeflate? Need to get some feedback from jacobsantos or DD32 on this.

  • Keywords needs-patch added; has-patch removed

Need some input from Jacob here i suspect.

However, My understanding is that DEFLATE != COMPRESS != GS ENCODED

gzcompress() / gzuncompress() - COMPRESS uses ZLIB compression

gzinflate() / gzdeflate() - DEFLATE data compression - Not compatible with mod_deflate, Need to strip the leading 11chars off the string in order to deflate it correctly (And it needs to be checked that its actually mod_deflate that compressed it)

gzencode() / gzdecode() - GZIP Compression. encode variety is PHP 4.0.4+, decode appears to be PHP6 only as you suggest. This function is compatible with mod_deflate as well as gzip'd output.

Now, As for the patch.

  • gzdeflate() is the method to compress the string, not inflate it(uncompress)
  • gzinflate() is tried first, followed by gzuncompress(), and finally gzdecode() if all else fails.

My suggestion would to just wrap the gzdecode() in a function_exists() check, PHP6 will eventually be the PHP5 of today..

Oh, And yeah, It needs an extra block put in there for deflating mod_deflate content along these lines:

if ( substr($compressed,0,3) == "\x1f\x8b\x08" && false !== ($decompressed = gzinflate( substr($compressed,0,3) ) ) )
    return $decompressed;

$decompressed = gzinflate( $compressed );

I got that from the page.

However looking at it, theres a few more cases..

Java class - Strip leading 2 char
mod_gzip - Strip leading 10 char
mod_deflate - strip leading 11 char

Could also use a help function much like the gzBody() function mentioned on the php page.

there are a few potential compat functions over here:
