'pictures' should be 8 string length. Thought, I got the result. It said that 'pictures' is 13 string length. It isn't correct. I notice that I use different words. It shows that string length is added with 5 practically. You can see that 8 (pcitures) length + 5 add length = 13 string length. I don't know why it is.

Reproduce code:
function word_match($a=null,$b=null)
					print("Orginal A: $a<br>");
					$a_length = strlen($a);
					$b_length = strlen($b);
					$search = true;
					$length = 0;
									$search = false;
									$result = true;
									print("<b>Websatellite: A: $a B: $b ($length>$b_length)</b>");
									$result = false;
									$search = false;
							print("<b><br>Websatellite: ($a_length) ".substr($b,$length,$a_length)."==$a</b>");
					return $result;

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
