What output are you getting from those lines, and what were you
expecting? $handle is just a resource, same as if you opened a regular
file -- you still need to read data from it with something like

If I'm writing a quick-and-dirty script to process piped-in data, I
find this construct to work reasonably well:

while(!feof(STDIN)) {
    $line = fgets(STDIN);

    // trim() $line here if I don't want trailing/vertical whitespace

    // now do something with $line

The one weakness of that form is that I always get an empty line at
the end, but as long as I check for that in the loop (which I should
usually be doing anyway), it's no problem.
