Bug #19900 Mysql table with field named "exit" exits php-script when doing a if statement!
Submitted: 2002-10-14 07:48 UTC Modified: 2002-10-14 09:26 UTC
From: sk at mira dot dk Assigned:
Status: Not a bug Package: MySQL related
PHP Version: 4.2.2 OS: FreeBSD 4.1
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Reproduce bug:
-Create a table with a field name "exit". 
-Run a script like this:
mysql_connect(SQL_HOST, SQL_USER, SQL_PASS);
echo "still allive";
$result=mysql_query("select * from table");
while ($row=mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
    if ($row[exit] == "something") {
          echo "do something"; }
    else {
          echo "something else"; }
echo "dead allready";

The problem is, that when you do a if statement on a 
$row[exit], then the php script is stoped as if you where calling "exit()";
It's only happening in a if statement with a MySQL field called exit. 

Configure line:
'./configure' '--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql' '--with-xml' '--enable-track-vars' '--with-apache=/usr/ports/distfiles/apache_1.3.19' '--with-gd=/usr/ports/distfiles/gd-2.0.1' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-bcmath' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local/lib' '--with-png-dir=/usr/local' '--with-zlib-dir=/usr/include' '--with-gettext' '--with-imap=/usr/ports/distfiles/imap-2001a'

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

Use $row['exit'] (like it is documented).

OK - sorry...
