To get the size of a temporary stream in PHP, you can use the fstat function along with the php://temp wrapper:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
$tmpStream = fopen('php://temp', 'r+'); // Open a temporary stream
fwrite($tmpStream, 'Hello, World!'); // Write some data to the stream

$streamStat = fstat($tmpStream); // Get the file status
$streamSize = $streamStat['size']; // Get the size of the stream

fclose($tmpStream); // Close the temporary stream

echo "Stream Size: " . $streamSize . " bytes"; // Output the size


This code creates a temporary stream using fopen and the php://temp wrapper. Then, it writes some data to the stream using fwrite.


Next, it uses fstat to get the file status of the stream, including the size of the stream. The size of the stream is extracted from the file status array using the key 'size'.


Finally, the temporary stream is closed using fclose, and the size is outputted using echo.

Another way to get the size of a temp stream in PHP is by using the stream_get_meta_data function:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
$tmpStream = fopen('php://temp', 'r+'); // Open a temporary stream
fwrite($tmpStream, 'Hello, World!'); // Write some data to the stream

$streamMeta = stream_get_meta_data($tmpStream); // Get the stream meta data
$streamSize = $streamMeta['size']; // Get the size of the stream

fclose($tmpStream); // Close the temporary stream

echo "Stream Size: " . $streamSize . " bytes"; // Output the size


In this code, we open a temporary stream using fopen and the php://temp wrapper. We write some data to the stream using fwrite. Then, we use stream_get_meta_data to get the stream's meta data, which includes the size of the stream. The size is extracted from the meta data array using the key 'size'. Finally, the temporary stream is closed using fclose, and the size is outputted using echo.
