Fix stream emulation #193

Stream API emulation is incomplete, because headers cannot be accessed out of the wrapper data so client code that works with native streams + curlwrappers fails when emulated by VCR.

What has been done

  • I've added the missing behavior to access the headers key which is populated by the native http and https stream implementations when PHP is compiled with curlwrappers support (the default on osx)
  • I've had to skip all the SOAP related tests. The WSDL file they are based on is throwing IIS errors. See

How to test

  • Use the CakePHP or Aura HTTP clients and turn on VCR. Without these changes you get mostly cryptic errors.

Skip SOAP tests.
The WSDL files from are no longer available. Because this
service is offline the quickest way to get a passing test run was to
skip some tests.
Add headers to stream wrapper_data emulation.
When using the stream_* methods some clients expect that there is an
internal key of `headers`. By emulating this key VCR can be compatible
with more clients. I encountered this issue when trying to use VCR with
the CakePHP HTTP Client which uses the stream API.
