    Unanswered: Question regarding fwrite(), filesize(), binary stream

    I have the stream of the binary data. I need to use some file
    associated function with it. For example filesize(), imagesize() etc.
    At the moment, I write this data stream into a tmp file
    fopen('/tmp/tempfile', 'x+'), do the file functions, then unlink()
    it. It surely is not an elegant way to do, let along a good
    portability way.

    Is there a way to create a file in the memory from the data stream? or
    even use file functions without first write the stream into a file? Please note, the data stream does not come from upload. So $_FILES does not help.

    Failing that, what is the most sercure way to find out where is the default temp directory within php?

    Thanks.
