Bug #32340 insert_before($node,NULL) does not return
Submitted: 2005-03-16 16:41 UTC Modified: 2005-03-17 14:14 UTC

Status: Closed Package: DOM XML related
PHP Version: 4.3.10 OS: Windows
Private report: No CVE-ID:

When using insert_before($node,NULL) to insert a DOM element as the last child of some other element, insert_before never returns (and does not throw an error). 

This call will work, if $node is unlinked before. The documentation of insert_node, however, says that unlinking is not required.

See example code below.

Reproduce code:

$doc = domxml_open_mem("<foo><bar/></foo>");
$dom = domxml_open_mem("<outer><inner/></outer>");
$root = $doc->document_element();
$node = $dom->document_element();
//$node->unlink_node(); // uncomment this to work
echo $doc->dump_mem();


Expected result:


If it is desired that the user has to explicitly unlink the node before inserting it, it would be nice to have an error message. insert_before should not hang.

Actual result:
insert_before does not return. The page is never sent to the client. No error message is given.
