On the documentaiton page of php.ini, it states:

" Since PHP 5.1.0, it is possible to refer to existing .ini variables from within .ini files. Example: open_basedir = ${open_basedir} ":/new/dir"."

This does not seem to work in 5.1 for parse_ini_file.

Also, it appears there is no way to reference sections, e.g.,

baz = ${}

That would be nice. Very nice, in fact (regardless of syntax required).

Reproduce code:
--- file.ini ---
foo = bar
baz = ${foo}

--- test.php ---

$ini = parse_ini_file( "file.ini", true );

var_dump( $ini );


Expected result:
array(1) {
  array(2) {
    string(3) "bar"
    string(3) "bar"

Actual result:
array(1) {
  array(2) {
    string(3) "bar"
    string(0) ""

This is not really bug but feature request. (nobody said it works with parse_ini_file(), did they?)

Er, true. However, read your comments on bug #33574. :-) It was also my understanding that they used the same parsing code, but this understanding may be flawed.
