When using the document search function on to search for parse_ini_file() and using the searchstring
"parse " (note the trailing space) this function will be found, but not on and
Searching for "parse" only does not even return the parse_ini_file function. There seems to be a problem with double underscores in function names and the website search.

Reproduce code:
Try to search for "parse" on any of the mirrors and  see yourself what is returned ;)

Expected result:
Expected to get a list of functions containing the word "parse", but not all functions are returned, mainly none of the functions containing double underscores.

Actual result:
As mentioned above, this is always reproduceable with either Mozilla 1.4 or IE 6.0.

There are functions returned with double underscores, when searching for "parse" or "parse " (without quotes). Namely yaz_ccl_parse and mb_parse_str. The fact that the parse_ini_file function is not found is probably a bug in the similar_text() function, which we use on the website.

1. Where is the reproducing short script?
2. What PHP versions are affected? (CVS)

I'll go into this more deeply. I have just made some test cases, showing interesting results (that the bug is probably not in PHP, but in the website code :). Therefore I am categorizing this stuff back to a website problem, and assigning it to myself. Sorry for bothering.

BTW I am not the original submitter of this bug report, don't know how I came to be in the database, I have just modified some data of the report (summary, OS, category), while commenting on it.

The original problem is not solved, but the number of listed results is extended.

The real issue here is that if we have very long function names, one small part is not enough to make the long name similar, so "less similar" functions come up to have better listings in this algorithm...

As this is not a bug in the website code, we are not going to fix it...
