Bug #55767 CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS Ignores Numeric Field Names
Submitted: 2011-09-23 07:41 UTC Modified: 2011-09-23 13:21 UTC
From: brad at hostland dot com Assigned: rasmus (profile)
Status: Closed Package: cURL related
PHP Version: 5.3.8 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2011-09-23 07:41 UTC] brad at hostland dot com
Description:
------------
If you use a numeric array key to represent a numeric field name, cURL will ignore the field completely when submitting the POST.

For example, suppose you have an HTML form containing a field named 'somefield' and another field named '100'. We want to simulate submitting this form using cURL:

When the script below is executed, cURL will submit the form and pass the 'somefield' data, but will completely ignore the '100' data in the form post.

$ch = curl_init('http://www.someurl.com');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
$fields['somefield'] = 'Some Data';
$fields['100'] = 'Some Other Data';
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $fields);
$output = curl_exec($ch);

Test script:
---------------
$ch = curl_init('http://www.someurl.com');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
$fields['somefield'] = 'Some Data';
$fields['100'] = 'Some Other Data';
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $fields);
$output = curl_exec($ch);

Fixed in 5.4 and trunk. Need to have a closer look to see if it might be a BC 
break in 5.3

Is there any way this can be fixed in 5.3? This is causing me big problems and I'm unable to install 5.4 at this time.

seconded, I cant see any reason for it to be a BC break either.
