we are handling a lot of cache files in our apps and use json to persist
those contents on the filesystem, because it seems to be the fastest
possible way to read/write files with PHP.
Since I discovered stream-filters, http://www.php.net/manual/en/filters.php,
we use those also for base64 encoding files before sending them over the
wire, which preserves a lot of memory and allows even bigger files.
Would it make sense to also have a native stream filter for fileformats
like JSON, to get maximum performance for reading/writing those (and also
to be able to write big files)?
What would it do, exactly? Stream filters still have to read/write a
string, don't they? Unless you're talking about reading directly into a
nested array structure (what json_decode() does), I am not sure what the
benefit is of what you're describing. (And I'm not sure you could do
that, although it would be neato if you could.)
