Bug #18949 ITX: Minor mistake in 'placeholderExists()' ?
Submitted: 2002-08-16 16:46 UTC Modified: 2005-09-02 10:16 UTC
From: heino at gehlsen dot dk Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: *General Issues
PHP Version: CVS (rev. 1.5) OS: Debian 3.0
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

I can't get placeholderExists() to work without making minor changes to the code:

while (list($k, $variable) = each($variables)) 
-    if ($variable == $placeholder) {
+    if ($k == $placeholder) {
        $found = $block;

(boolean) $variable != (string) $placeholder.
(string) $k = (string) $placeholder.

I don't have the time to check if it's placeholderExists() that is buggy or if it is $this->blockvariables' - sorry...

This bug was kind of a double-bug, since the same typo was made two times in the same function ? both when $block is empty (fixed) and when it is set (not fixed).

Sorry for the lack of detail...

No idea what this was about, assuming PEAR and it has it's own bug system.

Now that was an old bugger.

Yes, it's PEAR-related (HTML_Template_IT), and was actually fixed back in 2002, so it should of cause have been reclosed.

PEAR had its own category in PHP's bug system back then...
