Hi all,

I still have been completely unable to get this to work like it should. 
I have a simple script:

#!/usr/local/bin/php -q
    $fp = fopen("php://stdin", "r");
    while (($buf = fgets($fp, 512)) != false) {
        $input .= $buf;
    echo "$input";

So if I call this echo.php, then if I try something like

    cat /etc/hosts | ./echo.php

It prints a # (first line of /etc/hosts) followed by two blank lines. 
Then it quits. /etc/hosts does contain real data. This occurs with ANY 
file that I try to cat.

If you know what the problem might be, I would LOVE to hear your 
suggestions. I didn't get any replies the first time I asked, so I'm 
hoping that someone has something to contribute.

I'm using PHP 4.1.1 on Solaris 8.

Thanks in advance,
