I found what seems to be a bug with the trim functions, at least with trim() and ltrim(). I am working with some data like "NAME=First Last" where I have to trim off "NAME=". Every time a name occurs where the first name starts with an 'M' then the 'M' would be trimmed off. Any other character seems to be fine.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

All those characters are trimmed by trim($str, \"NAME=\")

because \"MAN\" are also part of a character sequence to be trimmed.
