this bug (?) is difficult to encircle and reproduce (and understand), because it appears in a very erratic way.

from time to time, when a file is read with file() and its content displayed line by line with each(), all its single and double quotes are automatically backslashed !
example :
with 'toto.txt' contains :  je n'aime pas ce "bug" !
and the following script :
<?php
  $my_file = file('toto.txt');
  while(list(, $my_line) = each($my_file)) {
    echo $my_line;
  }
?>

**sometimes** we get something like :
  je n\'aime pas ce \"bug\" !

(and sometimes not...)

?!?!

- our system :
  Linux 2.4 (Mdk 8)
  Apache 1.3.22
  PHP 4.0.6 (RPM Mdk)

RTM on magic quotes!
 [2002-01-24 08:53 UTC] phasme at cicv dot fr
My scripts remain unchanged, but the results are random... sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Where *constant* inputs produce *variable* outputs through a *constant* process within a *constant* configuration, can't we speak about bug ?

We have another server with the same version of PHP, the same 'php.ini' file and the same modules and extensions, which works and runs the same scripts without any problem...

For me, it's not a problem with magic quotes configuration.

OK. Reopening.

Please upgrade to the latest version.

Does the same behaviour occur with fopen() or readfile() or other file-functions?
 [2002-01-25 04:45 UTC] phasme at cicv dot fr
This behaviour doesn't seem to occur with fopen() and readfile() functions...
 [2002-02-07 13:29 UTC] ceo at l-i-e dot com
Things *I* would be looking for...

Multiple php.ini files on the server that are somehow being 
accessed.

.htaccess files that are setting MagicQuotes differently 
depending on what path (especially if symlinks are 
involved) is used to reach the page.

Anything unusual about the server configuration in 
httpd.conf, php.ini, .htaccess, PHP features compiled in 
etc.
