Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc.

If possible, make the script source available online and provide
an URL to it here. Try to avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

echo base64_encode(file_get_contents(""));

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

I can't reproduce it neither with 4.4-dev, nor with 5.1-dev.

i't is not allways posible to upgrade php i have no privileges to do this, and admin don't do this especially when you don't say that is realy bug or not. istead of this i discoverd that function file_get_contents (fread too) change every character which ord()==0 into two chr(92)+chr(48) and replace the use of this function with self-made function based on fgetc (works well)

please don't remove this reply mayby others find this usefull

when file_get_contents use os-dependent enchanments it must not be reproducable on every host

I can't reproduce it on Linux, so no, it is not OS-dependant.
Also do var_dump(file_get_contents()); and figure out what is the difference between the output and the real file contents.

Feel free to reopen the report when you're able to reproduce it with latest snapshots. Thank you.

i saw into source and now i know exactly what's going on. 
i wrote too allready that code 0 is replaced by 92,48 
also wenn magic_quoutes are enabled it change this string, so i'm not sure howto treat it now. surely i't should to be something about it secion of manual, that says that file_get_contents/fread are binary safe, and pear class MIME (that i use to send mails) should check this setting. 
anyway I apologize for inconvenience
 [2005-06-28 12:17 UTC] adax2000 at tlen dot pl
and the pair (that was oryginaly used in pear class MIME)
$fd = fopen("rys2.gif","rb");
$string = base64_encode(fread($fd,filesize("rys2.gif"));
realy should'n add this magic_quotos even if they are enabled at least in windows where you asure "rb" mean "read as binary"

This is well documented: and there is a number of functions that you can use to change its value.
