I am writing a php script to fetch a html page and verify its content which generated by a remote cgi program. The special cgi program generates endless content to the http client. Therefore, I need to figure out a solution for curl to fetch part of the html source code(In fact, I only need the first 100 lines of the html source). I tried CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, but when curl_exec() timeouts, it will not return part of the html source it already fetched--actually it returns nothing at all.
Is there any way to work around this?
$url = "http://www.example.com/cgi-bin/large_output.cgi";
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 3);
$result = curl_exec($ch);
