Description:
------------
Hi,

The example code at http://nl2.php.net/manual/en/numberformatter.parsecurrency.php doesn't seem to work for me.

This is perhaps also related to bug #54163 (?)

---

version        1.1.0
ICU version    4.4.1

Directive              Local Value    Master Value
intl.default_locale    no value	      no value
intl.error_level       0              0

Test script:
---------------
<?php
$fmt = numfmt_create( 'de_DE', NumberFormatter::CURRENCY );
$num = "1.234.567,89 $";
echo "We have ".numfmt_parse_currency($fmt, $num, $curr)." in $curr\n";
echo \PHP_EOL;

$fmt = new NumberFormatter( 'de_DE', NumberFormatter::CURRENCY );
$num = "1.234.567,89 $";
echo "We have ".$fmt->parseCurrency($num, $curr)." in $curr\n";
die;

Expected result:
----------------
We have 1234567.89 in USD
We have 1234567.89 in USD

Actual result:
--------------
We have <FALSE> in <NULL>
We have <FALSE> in <NULL>

Still fails in 5.3.8...
However it does seems to work when parsing in locale en[_US], e.g. $1 returns float(1) ("USD"). Didn't spot any other locales that work (mostly tested european locales; netherlands, germany, french)

Seeing the same issue except I am using PHP 5.3.8 as a fcgi module under apache 2.2 on Windows 7.

I don’t believe it is a bug. The problem is the example code. It errors when you 
copy it. There is some invisible invalid character between the space and the 
dollar sign, I believe. Try to replace the space character and the dollar sign in 
the `$num` variable, typing it.

You can also check it with this code:

$fmt = new \NumberFormatter('de_DE', \NumberFormatter::CURRENCY);
$num = "1.234.567,89 $";
print "We have ".$fmt->parseCurrency($num, $curr)." in $curr\n";

Tested the example code once more (copy-paste) on PHP 5.4.10 (ICU version 4.4.1, ICU Data version 4.4.0.1).

It still fails :') Also re-typing the code didnt help;

<?php
$fmt = numfmt_create('de_DE', NumberFormatter::CURRENCY);
$num = '1.234.567,89 $';
$curr = null;
echo 'We have ' . numfmt_parse_currency($fmt, $num, $curr) . ' in ' . $curr . PHP_EOL;

echo PHP_EOL;

$fmt = new NumberFormatter('de_DE', NumberFormatter::CURRENCY);
$num = '1.234.567,89 $';
$curr = null;
echo 'We have ' . $fmt->parseCurrency($num, $curr) . ' in ' . $curr . PHP_EOL;

That is odd that the example code had a hidden character which created an error, 
and removing it fixed the example on PHP 5.4.10 on Windows 7.

I am aware that this is filed as a bug under Linux, but what a remarkable 
coincidence.

Example

<?php
$fmt = new NumberFormatter( 'de_DE', NumberFormatter::CURRENCY );
$num = "1.234.567,89 $";
echo "We have ".$fmt->parseCurrency($num, $curr)." in $curr\n";
?>

rewritten as

<?php
$fmt = new NumberFormatter( 'de_DE', NumberFormatter::CURRENCY );
$num = "1.234.567,89\xc2\xa0$";
echo "We have ".$fmt->parseCurrency($num, $curr)." in $curr\n";
?>

works for me (php 5.5.16 on Ubuntu 12.04).
