Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at
http://www.php.net/manual/ and the instructions on how to report
a bug at http://bugs.php.net/how-to-report.php

signals can and will interrupt readings from files & 
sockets.

Hi iliaa@php.net,

Could you explain to me why this isn't a PHP bug? I don't observe this behavior in any other language.

Please see the IEEE standard for alarm() at http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/000095399/functions/alarm.html. They don't speak about any behavior that STDOUT should be eof'd.

I consider this a bug in PHP, even if it is documented. (I couldn't find any documentation, though.)

Sjors

$ perl -le '$SIG{ALRM} = sub { print "Alarm called!"; alarm(5); }; alarm(5); print while(<>)'

We are sorry, but we can not support PHP 4 related problems anymore.
Momentum is gathering for PHP 6, and we think supporting PHP 4 will
lead to a waste of resources which we want to put into getting PHP 6
ready.
