following script causes increasing memory leak in php.exe and excel.exe:

//**************************
$strfilename = ".\\test.xls";
$strfilename = realpath($strfilename);
set_time_limit(0);
$exapp = new COM("Excel.application") or Die ("Did not connect to Excel");
if (file_exists($strfilename))
{
  $wkb = $exapp->Workbooks->open($strfilename);
  for ($i=0; $i<10000000; $i++)
  {
    $Sheet = $wkb->Worksheets(1);
    $egal = $Sheet->Cells(1,1);
    $egal->value = 100;
  }
  $wkb->Save();
  $wkb->close(false,$strfilename,false);
}  
$exapp->Quit();
$exapp->Release();
//**************************

if the lines:

    $egal = $Sheet->Cells(1,1);
    $egal->value = 100;

will be deleted, only php.exe show the increasing memory leak.

Can you be a bit more descriptive please?
Any gdb backtrace or log?
Maybe this is a feedback too because 10 000 000 is a lot for your windows memory.

hi,

i have problems installing CVS snapshot for windows. I go same way installing the CVS, as i did for php version 4.22/4.23. If I try executing a php script, apache detects an "internal server error". I'm using apache version 1.1. Apache error log shows follwing message: "[Mon Nov 11 18:35:07 2002] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Premature end of script headers: c:/programme/php/php.exe". Can you help me? What's wrong?

 [2002-11-18 11:54 UTC] sven dot packmor at tz-mikroelektronik dot de

                  0   1000    2000   10000
excel.exe    7.500K 9.708K 11.600K 26.516K
php-cgi.exe  5.688K 8.084K 10.612K 29.716K

Hi, how about bugfixing? Is it possible to get a solution soon? We are developing for DaimlerChrysler germany. Our project stagnate. We have a lot of data to transport across COM-mechanism. It's very urgent to get a bugfixing. Can you help us?
 [2002-12-02 04:02 UTC] derick@php.net
Well, you can always hire a PHP developer to do it if it is so urgent for your project. Please don't forget that PHP is an Open Source project, totally run by volunteers which dedicate their spare time to develop on PHP.

Hi Derick,

if we don't hire an PHP developer, when do you think the bug will be fixed? Is there a roadmap for this bug?

as soon as anybody is in the mood to fix it  ... erm, and 'Hi, how about bugfixing ?' or 'Is it possible to get a solution soon?' for sure doesn't bring anyone into that mood.
but you have full access to the sources and can always send in a patch.
