 [2003-12-13 09:11 UTC] hartmut@php.net
Description:
------------
xml_get_current_line_number() results differ between PHP 4 (expat) and PHP 5 (libxml2) as libxml2 seems to skip over CDATA sections when counting source lines

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
$xml ='<?xml version="1.0"?>
<data>
<![CDATA[
multi
line 
CDATA
block
]]>
</data>';

function startElement($parser, $name, $attrs) {
    echo "<$name> at line ".xml_get_current_line_number($parser)."\n";
}
function endElement($parser, $name) {
    echo "</$name> at line ".xml_get_current_line_number($parser)."\n";
}

$xml_parser = xml_parser_create();
xml_set_element_handler($xml_parser, "startElement", "endElement");
xml_parse($xml_parser, file_get_contents("test.xml", true));
xml_parser_free($xml_parser);
?>

Expected result:
----------------
<DATA> at line 2
</DATA> at line 9


Actual result:
--------------
<DATA> at line 2
</DATA> at line 4

regression test added: ext/xml/test/bug26614.phpt
 [2004-03-29 00:46 UTC] hholzgra@php.net
further investigation shows that not only the line number count 
is broken with CDATA but also column number and byte position
produced with libxml2 are in no way consistent with expat results

-> regression test updated
 [2004-03-31 12:19 UTC] rrichards@php.net
line numbering is fixed with libxml cvs. will be released in 2.6.9. column and byte position still an issue
 [2005-02-13 22:54 UTC] sniper@php.net
libxml bugs belong elsewhere..
