This probably doesn't matter much but.
Due to a faulty copy/paste on a script, i noticed that apache segfaults on the following code:

Obviously this code is incorrect, but still you might find usefull to correct the segfault.

Reproduced, there's something weird going on:

it's not exclusive to opendir(). this blows up, too:

$baz = fopen("/tmp/foo","w");
$foo=fopen("/tmp/bar", "w");

(should you even be able to define() a resource? seems like a recipe for trouble.)

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a PHP problem, snapshots of the sources are packaged
every three hours; this change will be in the next snapshot. You can
grab the snapshot at
In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up soon at

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the site and on the mirror sites in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.
