Request #16962 dataFromFile() for very big messages support

Description: ------------ Currently it's not possible to send a very big message, let's say 500MB, because PHP's memory_limit. It would be nice to have a function to read message data from file and send it line by line.

I'd be happy to consider a patch that implements the requested behavior. I think the Net_Socket package would also require an update. It currently expects its outbound data as a string (rather than a stream), so that interface would need to be extended/improved before the Net_SMTP package could make use of it.

I think we can do this without Net_Socket change, simply sending data line by line using _send(). Do we? $handle = fopen("file", "r"); // here sent DATA ... // now file content while (!feof($handle)) { $data = fgets($handle, 1024); if ($data ===false) return "read error"; $this->quotedata($data); if (PEAR::isError($result = $this->_send($data))) { return $result; } } fclose($handle); // and here "\r\n.\r\n" ...

Yes, I think something like that will work. I think the best API would be to expand the current data() method to accept the $data parameter as either a string or a file resource. In the second case, the caller would be responsible for opening and closing the file handle.

This bug has been fixed in SVN. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better. Have a look at what I just implemented in SVN.

But you cannot call filesize() on file handle. We need it for SIZE check.

I've forgot about fstat, looks good to me now. Will test.

It's working. I think you can make a new release.
