I don't see any problem here, the script below produce the correct output:

[derick@kossu derick]$ php-4.3.2RC4 
echo long2ip(3232238081);

Please submit a valid script that reproduces this problem.

echo 2147483647 % 1000,"\n";
echo 2147483648 % 1000,"\n";
echo 2147483649 % 1000,"\n";
echo fmod(2147483648,1000),"\n";



This is on 32 bit Linux. I'm not sure whether % is supposed to work with numbers bigger than LONG_MAX. 

No problem with long2ip here.

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

PHP only supports signed integers (range is -2147483648 to 2147483647 on Linux), so this is actually the expected behavior. We do not 'upgrade' the number to a float automatically because that would be against the nature of the % operator: integer modulo.

Won't fix is a better state.
