I have had mixed results from this. Sometimes just crashing, sometimes dumping rubbish to the browser, or memory leak errors
/home/kevin/html/php/dev/this/php5-200410111830/main/spprintf.c(707) :  Freeing 0x09E2237C (79 bytes), script=/home/kevin/html/blah.php
=== Total 1 memory leaks detected ===
/home/kevin/html/blah.php(15) : Fatal error - Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted at /home/kevin/html/php/dev/this/php5-200410111830/ext/spl/spl_directory.c:303 (tried to allocate 1851878463 bytes)

Reproduce code:


  $path = './';

  $offset = 3;

  $count = 5;

  $obj= new LimitIterator(new DirectoryIterator($path), $offset, $count);
  foreach($obj as $key=>$file)
    echo $obj->current(). ' -> ';
    echo $obj->getPathname() . '<br />';

Expected result:
Expect  to get current filename and path

Actual result:
(gdb) run -X
Starting program: /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -X
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
[New Thread -1084544960 (LWP 20216)]

Program exited with code 01.
