PHP CURL: How to limit read size


In some case, we need to read a first part of a website page or a file (eg a big file). How to limit read size?
We can use CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION:
Example 1:

<?php
set_time_limit(0);
$size = 1440;

$ch = curl_init();
$content = '';
$callback = function ($ch, $str) {
    global $content,$size;
    $content.=$str;
    if(curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_SIZE_DOWNLOAD)>$size) return 0;
    return strlen($str);
};
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://cs508406.userapi.com/4/u330693590/videos/92b2dc68ca.240.mp4?extra=4Gcx1QRbTb9L-KnybR62GHqd-yXkkermpNo9FXlTXyzjAmIy4riNKfKvI6_CNu3_nqAYCj8Tzlk5bj0bZBh5LsvI8tDi4hqaKDbTcCjJWDlpwa7kDw3NGOZzTsco9IathZzQ-Ds5Z-GI');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true );
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 10000);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, $callback);
curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);
var_dump($content);

Example 2: get header and more information

<?php
set_time_limit(0);
$size = 1440;
$headers = array();
$ch = curl_init();

$content = '';
$callback = function ($ch, $str) {
    global $content,$size;
    $content.=$str;
    if(curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_SIZE_DOWNLOAD)>$size) return 0;
    return strlen($str);
};
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://cs508406.userapi.com/4/u330693590/videos/92b2dc68ca.240.mp4?extra=4Gcx1QRbTb9L-KnybR62GHqd-yXkkermpNo9FXlTXyzjAmIy4riNKfKvI6_CNu3_nqAYCj8Tzlk5bj0bZBh5LsvI8tDi4hqaKDbTcCjJWDlpwa7kDw3NGOZzTsco9IathZzQ-Ds5Z-GI');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true );
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 10000);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADERFUNCTION,'header_callback');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLINFO_HEADER_OUT, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION, $callback);
curl_exec($ch);
$info = curl_getinfo($ch);
curl_close($ch);
function header_callback($ch, $header_line)
{ 
    global $headers;
    $headers[] = $header_line;
    return strlen($header_line);
}
var_dump($headers,strlen(implode("",$headers)));
var_dump($info);

Result:
