Bug #25963 postgres error message include \n characters
Submitted: 2003-10-23 05:50 UTC Modified: 2003-11-25 17:21 UTC

Status: Closed Package: PostgreSQL related
PHP Version: 4.3.3 OS: *

When a connection to a Postgres database fails, the error message which is in the $php_errormsg variable ends with the following string : '\n\n.'

The final '.' is quite anoying because you just can't 'trim' the $php_errormsg, you must 'trim ($php_errormsg, "\n.")' to remove the dot and the newline characters.

Could it be possible to remove the final dot, or even the final '\n\n.' string ?

I tried with the lastest CVS and there is no changes.

Here is a sample code :

----file toto.php----
if (! pg_connect ('blablabla')) {
 echo '{' . $php_errormsg . '}';

I execute 'php toto.php'. It displays :

{Unable to connect to PostgreSQL server: missing "=" after "blablabla" in connection info string

As you can see there is a newline character between 'string' and '.'.

This newline character mess up the html code if you d'ont remove it...

It still works, but it break your html code format :p
