To start with, this is CVS from over a week ago (PHP_5_3 and PECL) but I can see from the commit list that it hasn't been fixed in the interim. The bug tracking system doesn't allow me to tell you this much. The ICU version I built PHP against is 3.4 (from Edin's library collection). I haven't tried yet with 3.4.1 or up.

I've tried with and without the currency symbol; I've tried shifting the position to match the first digit rather than the currency symbol; I've tried different currencies. The straightforward parse() method works perfectly, but the currencyParse() method does not - at least on my box.

Reproduce code:

$nf = new NumberFormatter('en_US', NumberFormatter::CURRENCY);
$pos = 13;
print $nf->parseCurrency("When parsing ".$nf->format(123)." this will return false, or at least a hidden error", $currency, $pos)."\n";
print $currency."\n";
print $pos."\n";
print intl_get_error_message();


Expected result:
20 // note: I'm guessing wildly here. Above 13 anyway.

Actual result:

Number parsing failed: U_PARSE_ERROR

Works for me with ICU 3.6 - could you test with more recent ICU?

Not easily - there's no support whatever for building ICU 3.6 or up with MSVC 6, so it needs spending time on. Best I can do right now would be 3.4.1...

Is there any way you can test with 3.4 on your system so we can at least know if it's an old ICU bug?

I suspect that your ICU prints format() result without currency sign. Could you check what $nf->format() produces - 123 or $123?
 [2008-01-02 20:43 UTC] steph dot fox at virgin dot net
Nope, it gives currency sign, decimal point + two decimal places... I put that in the test script because I'd tried all the variations manually before posting a bug report. If it works for you though it still seems most likely an old ICU bug, I'd just like to be certain.

$nf = new NumberFormatter('en_US', NumberFormatter::CURRENCY);
print $nf->format(123);
