 [2009-07-02 07:04 UTC]
parse_ini_file() crashes in INI_SCANNER_RAW mode if a configuration item consists solely of an equals sign.

Reproduce code:
INI file contents:

equal = "="

PHP script:

$ini = parse_ini_file('equals.ini', false, INI_SCANNER_NORMAL);

$ini = parse_ini_file('equals.ini', false, INI_SCANNER_RAW);

Expected result:
array(1) {
  string(1) "="
array(1) {
  string(1) "="

Actual result:
array(1) {
  string(1) "="
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
