Bug #52496 Zero exit code on option parsing failure
Submitted: 2010-07-30 08:36 UTC Modified: 2011-05-30 17:58 UTC
From: php-bugs at thequod dot de Assigned: iliaa
Status: Closed Package: CGI/CLI related
PHP Version: 5.3.3 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2010-07-30 08:36 UTC] php-bugs at thequod dot de
Description:
------------
When PHP's option parsing fails, PHP outputs the "Usage" info, but exits with exit code 0, which means "success".

So, given any PHP script where the options in the shebang line are wrong, or only considered wrong (like with bug 52495), will never execute, but always report success!

Please fix this, so that option parsing will return a non-exit error code.

Test script:
---------------
# php --wrong-option ; echo $?

Expected result:
----------------
# php --wrong-option ; echo $?
Usage: php [options] [-f] <file> [--] [args...]
[...]

1

Actual result:
--------------
# php --wrong-option ; echo $?
Usage: php [options] [-f] <file> [--] [args...]
[...]
