when using preg_match, the end delimiter of regexp expression is now expected to be ^, breaking all compability.

shouldnt the end delimiter be '$' ?

Reproduce code:
preg_match ("^(.+)$", 'foo', $regs);


Expected result:
    [0] => foo
    [1] => foo

Actual result:
Warning: preg_match() [function.preg-match]: No ending delimiter '^' found in C:\[..cut..]

Read the documentation, you need delimiters around the expression. Since ^ is the first character its making that the delimiter.

/^(.+)$/ works.

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.
