This bug already was reported (bug # 4244), but was closed due to missing user feedback.

When I try to print the content of an array - created for the functions dbase_get_records() or dbase_get_records_by_name(), script returns trash (each time a different trash).

(1) This problem does not happen with all archives DBF that I try to list;
(2) The archives (.DBF) are not corrupted;
(3) The garbage that appears includes, also, parts of proper script PHP (parts of functions, variable, etc.);
(4) In both the tested operational systems (Windows and Linux), the result is the same;
(5) Another version of the PHP was used (4.3.2), the result was the same;

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/php --with-apxs2=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs --with-mysql --with-dbase

Default with php_dbase.dll.

(sorry for bad english)

Reproduce code:
$dbname1 = "/usr/temp/AAPFUN01.DBF";
$con1 = dbase_open($dbname1,0);

$rows   = dbase_numrecords($con1);
$fields = dbase_numfields($con1);

for ($i=1;$i<=$rows;$i++) {
  $registro = dbase_get_record($con1,$i) or die("erro");

  for ($x=0; $x < $fields; $x++) {
    $teste = $registro[$x];
    echo($teste . "<br>");


Expected result:
For example, in key #17 of the array, the expected result:

'20020301' (date type field)

Actual result:
But the actual result is:

'200203011995090101                    1       0.000 0     240.00     160.0014220219750811        10   020245AL   15  49800238163644712550714425 ...(etc.)'

(this result is the rest of the fields (keys) concatenated. the next key is trash, until the end of array).
