Questionsocket read on a keep alive request waits until connection timeout PinmemberJayapal Chandran17-Sep-12 4:50 
How to know whether the server has no data while reading the response of a request which is keep alive because the socket read function waits for the server to send data if we have made a request with keep alive option.
 
I am writing a socket program to fetch a webpage.
 
My request header has no connection close header so by default the connection is keep alive.
 
I open a connection, send the request header using socket_write and getting using a while loop to receive data
if it is a Connection Close request the everything works well.
 
if it is keep alive and after i have read the content the socket_read function is still waiting for data which causes the code to hand in there.
 
Here how do we know whether the server has completed sending the resource though it is keep alive...
 
i have a work around like checking the content-length response header to know how much data is received and accordingly i can stop reading
 
or
 
if response header has transfer-encoding as chunked then i can write more code to find the end of the response
 
yet without the above two workarounds how to check whether the socket_recv is still waiting for data?
 
Besides, i was thinking that since we are setting the read buffer length (like 1024 in this code) and the socket_recv is returning the no of bytes read and if the bytes read is less than 1024 then i can assume that the next read will not return anything and by this time i can quit the while loop.... BUT http server sends different length response so my logic will not work.
 
Here is my request header and the while loop in which i receive date from the server
 
//i have commented the connection close header so that by default it will be keep alive
 
$o = 'GET /search?hl=en&q='.$query.'&start='.$start.' HTTP/1.1'."\r\n";
$o.= 'Host: www.google.co.in'."\r\n";
$o.= 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0'."\r\n";
//$o.= 'Connection: close'."\r\n";
$o.= "\r\n";
 
//writing $o to the socket resource

//receiving the response

do
{
    $bytes = socket_recv($f, $tbuf, 1024, 0x40);
 
    if($bytes === false)
              die("\r\nUnable to read headers - ".socket_strerror(socket_last_error()));
 
    echo "\r\n".$bytes;
 
    if(!$bytes)break;
 
    $buf.= $tbuf;
}while(1);
 
In the above code after i have received the complete html of a webpage the control is in the line where i am reading the response. Which i assume the code is still waiting for data from the server.
 
Suggestions, comments and advice's are welcome.
