I have notice a strange beaviour with the pg_connection_status function.

See this code :

Reproduce code:

echo pg_connection_status (false) == PGSQL_CONNECTION_OK ? 'strange' : 'ok';

Expected result:

I think I should see 'ok' on the screen. false is not a valid Postgres connection.

Actual result:

However 'strange' is written on the screen.

It may not be a bug. But this behaviour should be written in the doc.

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

Your code is wrong, use ===, see below why:

marcus@zaphod /usr/src/php5 $ php -r \'var_dump(pg_connection_status(false));\'
marcus@zaphod /usr/src/php5 $ php -r \'var_dump(PGSQL_CONNECTION_OK);\'
