TSRM/tsrm_strtok_r.c reimplements strtok_r(3C) (php-5.2.0 and php-5.2.1).

Please don't do this on Solaris. There is no reason to reimplement a Standard C Library function.

Usually reimplementation of a c library function means that we rely on very specific functionality. Otfen in this cases many implementations are simply plain wrong. This is true for a bunch of stuff where werequire the C99 compliant implementation.

Exactly what features or specific functionality does your strtok_r provide that strtok_r implementations from Solaris or Linux or BSD or Windows do not ?


If you have identified a bug in any of these implementations of strtok_r(3C), please identify the bug.

Duplicating Standard C Library all over the place just because "it doesn't crash anymore if I do this" is not really a valid justification.

Thank you.
