Function `parse_ini_file()` work strange with this char combination `<!` as value for parameters, all chars after `<!` will be skipped.


file `config.ini`
one = "work fine"
two = ">!work fine too"
three = "<!does not work"

Reproduce code:

$cfg = parse_ini_file('');


Expected result:
Array ( [one] => work fine [two] => >!work fine too [three] =>

Small typo in reproduce code, file name must be `config.ini` not ``

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.

You must be viewing this print_r() output in a browser? It's interpreting the < as the beginning of an HTML tag (the ending ")" of "Array ( ... )" was lost too). View the page source and you'll see the correct output there.

Reopen if that's not the case. :-)
