This is because the reading from socket is blocked_read by default. So there is
fuinction socket_set_blocking() and also
I had the same problem so as workaround set_time_limit(0) but the script works for 40
!! seconds. My aim was to get some header so I
didn't read from the socket until feof($fp) but stopped somewhere before the end of
data and close()-ing socket after that. After
this intervention the time which the scripts uses is 4!!! seconds.
