Bug #27597 pg_fetch_array not returning false
Submitted: 2004-03-14 14:45 UTC Modified: 2004-03-15 14:42 UTC
From: ritchie at ipowerhouse dot com Assigned: helly (profile)
Status: Closed Package: PostgreSQL related
PHP Version: 5CVS-2004-03-15 OS: *
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

looping a recordset based on pg_fetch_array() returning 
false results in an infinite loop 

Reproduce code:
function xi_fetch_array($rs,$type=PGSQL_ASSOC) {
	$a = pg_fetch_array($rs,NULL,$type) ;
	return $a ;	

I use this in previous version with no problem.

Apache 2.0.48/ PG 7.4.1 
Hi there, I have a large framework which uses the code, so 
I don't have a small test case. However, I just compiled 
php4.3.4 and everything works fine. My only change was to 
load module 4.3.4 instead of php5 beta 4 in httpd.conf. So 
it is definitly a php5 issue.

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

And what exactly DOES it return?
(do a var_dump() on the $a variable)

Ok, it's the same on the latest snapshot,   
What I'm getting is the _first record_ of the record set   
returned ad infinitum. This var_dump on $a, was taken   
after dropping out of the loop after 10 interations. But I   
recieved none of the other records only the first.   
array(4) { ["name"]=> string(14)   
"affiliate_name" ["value"]=> string(11)   
"ipowerhouse" ["affiliate_id"]=> string(2)   
"-1" ["category"]=> string(3) "iph" }

The patch r1.296 seems to have broken this.
(see ext/pgsql/pgsql.c:1450-1465, the 1458-1465 is never used)
