HI everyone,

Thanks for those of you in the past that helped me with my downloader
not displaying the filename.  Someone gave me a link to the downloader
below which works GREAT but i've tried and tried to limit the data
transfer to 60KB a second andI can't get it to work, can any of you
see what I could add to get it to work?  The first peice of code the
code I WANT to use as it lets me download with the correct filename
etc ...... but the second piece of code allows me to limit the speed
of the transfer but when I try to merge the second with the first it
craps out on me.

Any help would REALLY be appreciated on this one.

Thanks everyone.

Piece of code 1 (Code I WANT to use)

function forceDownload($file) {
         * Function forceDownload:
         *      download any type of file if it exists and is readable
         * -------------------------------------
         * @author              Andrea Giammarchi
         * @date                18/01/2005 [17/05/2006]
         * @compatibility       PHP >= 4.3.0
        if(file_exists($file) && is_readable($file)) {
                $filename = basename($file);
                if(strpos(strtoupper($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']), 'MSIE') !== 
&& strpos($filename, '.') !== false) {
                        $parsename = explode('.', $filename);
                        $last = count($parsename) - 1;
                        $filename = implode('%2E', array_slice($parsename, 0, 
                        $filename .= '.'.$parsename[$last];
                header('Content-Type: application/octet-stream');
                header('Content-Disposition: attachment; 
                header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary');
                if(@$file = fopen($file, "rb")) {
                                echo fread($file, 8192);


Piece of code 2 (Which limits nice but has other issues)

$speed = 60; // i.e. 60 kb/s download rate
if(file_exists($file) && is_file($file)) {
   header("Cache-control: private");
   header("Content-Type: application/octet-stream");
   header("Content-Length: ".filesize($file));
   //header("Content-Disposition: filename=$file" . "%20");

   header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"$file\"");

   $fd = fopen($file, "r");
   while(!feof($fd)) {
      echo fread($fd, round($speed*1024)); // $speed kb at a time
   fclose ($fd);

Thank you everyone, it's really appreciated.
