When I wanted to test the reflection function in PHP5.0.1 I stumbled upon something strange. For some reason it gives me an error that I did not expect especially not from the example codes in the manual.

The error: Trying to clone an uncloneable object of class ReflectionFunction ... is quite strange ... Either I am doing something wrong or this is a real bug.

Please help me becouse I like to use the reflection API.

Reproduce code:

Example 18-28. Using the ReflectionFunction class

Expected result:
Not the error

Actual result:
Fatal error: Trying to clone an uncloneable object of class ReflectionFunction in D:\hosted\stuff\test.php on line 15

This seems to only occur when zend.ze1_compatibility_mode is set to On.

Is this then still a bug or is it just me not understanding something?

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

Reflection API classes are not cloneable.

While in ze1 compat mode the engine tries to do so unless you assign by explicit reference.

=> just DON\'T MIX PHP 4 and PHP 5 specific functionality.
   Either specific 4 or specific 5 but not compat mode 
   and all new features of 5.
