Bug #52051 handling of case sensitivity of old-style constructors changed in 5.3+
Submitted: 2010-06-11 17:33 UTC Modified: 2010-06-12 17:30 UTC

Status: Closed Package: Scripting Engine problem
PHP Version: 5.3.2 OS: Win32
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2010-06-11 17:33 UTC] php at kingsquare dot nl
Description:
------------
Since PHP 5.3+ (it worked in 5.2.6) handling of old-style constructors with case sensitive (i.e. camelcasing) changed. The 'generated' constructor is only available in lower case since 5.3

Test script:
---------------
<?php
// WORKING
class AA {
    function AA() { echo 'works!'; }
}
class bb extends AA {}
class CC extends bb {
   function CC() { parent::bb(); }
}
new CC();

// FATAL ERROR
 class A {
    function A() { echo 'check'; }
}
class B extends A {}
class C extends B {
   function C() { parent::B(); }
}
new C();

Expected result:
----------------
works!check

Actual result:
--------------
works!
Fatal error: Call to undefined method B::B() in C:\php\test.php on line 18

Call Stack:
    0.0002     331488   1. {main}() C:\php\test.php:0
    0.0003     331656   2. C->C() C:\php\test.php:20
