Bug #48514 cURL extension uses same resource name for simple and multi APIs
Submitted: 2009-06-09 21:40 UTC Modified: 2009-06-12 20:52 UTC

Status: Closed Package: cURL related
PHP Version: 5.*, 6CVS (2009-06-10) OS: *

 [2009-06-09 21:40 UTC] wharmby at uk dot ibm dot com
The cURL extension currently registers 2 resource types and instances of these resources are returned by the curl_init() and curl_multi_init() api's. 

However, it is not currently possible to programaticaly determine which type of curl resource a variable represents as get_resource_type() returns "curl" for both types of resource.

I expected to get a different names for each of the 2 resource types; e.g "curl" and "curl_multi"

Reproduce code:

$ch1 = curl_init();

$ch2 = curl_multi_init();


Expected result:
resource(4) of type (curl)
string(4) "curl"
resource(5) of type (curl_multi)
string(4) "curl_multi"

Actual result:
resource(4) of type (curl)
string(4) "curl"
resource(5) of type (curl)
string(4) "curl"
