Bug #17374 pow fails if either parameter is a string

Status: Closed Package: *Math Functions
PHP Version: 4.2.1 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Execute this code:

echo pow($x,3);

PHP returns "Warning: Invalid argument(s) passed to pow() in /www/default/test.php3 on line 5".

"2" should be automatically interpreted as the number 2. This problem didn't occur in version 4.1.2.
