Identical to file_get_contents, except that stream_get_contents operates on an already open stream resource and returns the remaining contents in a string, up to length bytes and starting at the specified offset.
- stream (resource)
A stream resource (e.g. returned from fopen)
- length (int)
The maximum bytes to read. Defaults to null (read all the remaining buffer).
- offset (int)
Seek to the specified offset before reading. If this number is negative, no seeking will occur and reading will start from the current position.
Returns a string or false on failure.
This function is binary-safe.
