Supported Protocols and Wrappers

PHP comes with many built-in wrappers for various URL-style protocols for use with the filesystem functions such as fopen, copy, file_exists and filesize. In addition to these wrappers, it is possible to register custom wrappers using the stream_wrapper_register function.

Note: The URL syntax used to describe a wrapper only supports the scheme://... syntax. The scheme:/ and scheme: syntaxes are not supported.
