OK, so this was created when I *tried* to crash PHP, but hey, every little helps.

Should PHP detect a stack overflow, because at the moment it doesn't - the script...

<?php
function foo()
{
  foo()
}
foo();
?>

Will seg-fault PHP, which I guess makes it possible for anyone to kill it off with a bit of effort.

And for the leet of you out there - the following script is the shortest one we've found to do this with :P (A friend and I were looking for the shortest PHP script that will run, but crash...

<? function foo(){foo();}foo(); ?>
