Bug #52656 DOMCdataSection::splitText broken
Submitted: 2010-08-20 15:24 UTC Modified: 2010-11-29 15:49 UTC
From: daniel_schulz1 at web dot de Assigned: iliaa
Status: Closed Package: DOM XML related
PHP Version: 5.3.3 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2010-08-20 15:24 UTC] daniel_schulz1 at web dot de
The class "DOMCdataSection" inherits the function "splitText" from DOMText.
However, this function apparently always return bool(false), a return type not even mentioned in the DOMText::splitText documentation.

Test script:
$CData = new DOMCdataSection('splithere!');
$CDataSplit = $CData->splitText(5);
var_dump($CData->data);			//string(10) "splithere!"
var_dump($CDataSplit->data);	//NULL

var_dump($CDataSplit);			//bool(false)

Expected result:
The function $CData->splitText() should have returned a "DOMCdataSection" object with its "data" property containing "here!".
The object $CData should have its "data" property shortened to "split".

Actual result:
The function $CData->splitText() returns boolean "false", and does not modify its object's "data" property.
