php and inetd

P: n/a
I know this will probably sound weird to many of you, but I'm currently
writing an NNTP server in PHP (using MySQL as the article storage). At
the moment, the server is a single client handling script which is
called by inetd/tcpd and uses stdin/stdout. I have read that in C, the
usual function calls to get peer name et cetera will work on stdin in
such a situation, as the client socket has been dup'd there, and file
descriptors and sockets are treated the same in C. However, PHP won't
let me do a socket_getpeername since the descriptor for stdin is not a
"socket resource". Does anyone know of a way to get this information?
