$rules = ['age' => 'integer'];

$input = json_decode('{"age": null}', true);

Validator::make($input, $rules)->passes(); // true

gettings started with reading streams in PHP
View getting-started-streams.php
// Open the stream
$numbers = fopen(__DIR__ . '/numbers.txt', 'r');
// Wrap our parser in an infinite loop, so it won't stop until we say so
while (true) {
// Read a line
$buffer = fgets($numbers);
// The docs say it will return false when there arent any bytes left,
// so we break out of our loop and let the sript die when that happens.

setup dragonrise controllers with crouton

To make dragonrise n64 and snes controllers work with my crouton xfce4/ubuntu chroot, I had to recompile the kernel with support for the hid_dr module. These are the steps to get the controllers working. Almost all steps are taken from the sources listed below. All commands are entered in the chroot's terminal, not the chronos shell.

sudo apt-get install git-core make kernel-package
cd ~
git clone -b chromeos-3.8
cd kernel
nano chromeos/config/base.config

type ctrl-w, type 'error_on_warning' and press enter to find the line you need to edit.
