check if image is partially uploaded with ftp-software

Even if you upload an image partially with ftp software, you can still read
the image. Only the image will be partially gray.

So, can I determine with a php-function if an image is fully uploaded on the
server and without checking the filesize using an interval in time?

To be completely clear : this isn't about http-upload, but about uploaded
files with external ftp-software.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
I'm not sure, but see if the Image functions that load image files
(imagecreatefro mjpeg, imagecreatefrom gif, imagecreatefrom png, and so
on) will return error codes on truncated image files. If they do,
just figure out what format the image was supposed to be in, try to
load it, and see if it works.

If not, I suspect you'd have to investigate image-format-specific
routines (i.e. roll-your-own JPEG checker, roll-your-own GIF checker,
and so on, which might not be too hard if you only use one or two
formats, but which would require you to understand the image formats
yourself).

Alternatively, if you're the only one uploading files, maybe you could
set something up so that partial files don't stay lying around
(either the server or the client sets some option to delete them if
they're incomplete).

Hi all, I want to be able to resize an image that a user has uploaded. I have the image upload working as well as the image resize. When I go to delete the original uploaded file (I want to replace the uploaded file with the new resized version) I get a "file being used by another process" error. I therefore cannot replace the uploaded image with the new thumbnail. How can I get around this???

I have a requirement to partially preprocess C code. By 'partially' I mean that I need to define some macros (to the utility) and have it preprocess only those macros, leaving everything else intact. A compiler's preprocessor won't do this, since it will also process macros defined in the code (and in standard header files) and strip out everything. For instance, given source like: #include <stdio.h> #if defined(AAA) void...
