18.5. Reading from Standard Input

18.5.3. Discussion

Section 20.4 discusses reading data from the keyboard in a command-line context. Reading data from standard input isn't very useful in a web context, because information doesn't arrive via standard input. The bodies of HTTP POST and file-upload requests are parsed by PHP and put into special variables. They can't be read on standard input, as they can in some web server and CGI implementations.
