Request #58005 Quotes in message formats are counterintuitive
Submitted: 2008-01-11 19:04 UTC Modified: 2008-03-06 13:05 UTC
From: stas at zend dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: intl (PECL)
PHP Version: 5.2.1 OS:
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2008-01-11 19:04 UTC] stas at zend dot com
Description:
------------
Java's MessageFormat treats ' (single quote) as escape character, so this:

<?php
  $fmt = new MessageFormatter("en_US", "Jack's mother is {1, number} years old ");
  echo "result is:". $fmt->format(array(70));
  echo "pattern is:".$fmt->getPattern()."\n";
?>

would produce:

result is:Jacks mother is {1, number} years old     
pattern is:Jacks mother is '{'1, number} years old

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the
end of next Sunday (CET) on pecl.php.net.

In case this was a pecl.php.net website problem, the change will show
up on the website in short time.
 
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PECL better.

Now uses autoquote.
