I'm using php's
file_get_contents() function to do a HTTP request. To save bandwidth I decided to add the
"Accept-Encoding: gzip" header using
file_get_contents() outputs a gzip encoded string so I'm using
gzuncompress() to decode the encoded string but I get an error with data passed as argument.
[...] PHP Warning: gzuncompress(): data error in /path/to/phpscript.php on line 26
I know there is another function able to decompress gzipped data
gzdecode() but it isn't included in my PHP version (maybe it is only available on SVN).
I know that cUrl decodes gzip stream on the fly (without any problem) but someone suggested me to use
file_get_contents() instead of cUrl.
Do you know any other way to decompress gzipped data in PHP or why
gzuncompress() outputs a Warning? It is absurd that
gzuncompress() doesn't work as expected.
The problem is certainly about PHP: the HTTP request is made to Tumblr API that give a well-encoded response.
