From manual page:
Due to a small error I found that is_file returns true for something like "path/.ext" when "path/" files there ".ext".

Test script:
$filename = "path/.json";
is_file($filename);true if there are files in path "*. json"

Hi simon:
  I don't get it. does it look like this? 

    /a.json   <---- a.json or any *.json ?
cat testscript.php
$filename = "path/.json";
var_dump(is_file($filename)); ===> bool(true)

Thank you for this bug report. To properly diagnose the problem, we
need a short but complete example script to be able to reproduce
this bug ourselves. 

A proper reproducing script starts with <?php and ends with ?>,
is max. 10-20 lines long and does not require any external 
resources such as databases, etc. If the script requires a 
database to demonstrate the issue, please make sure it creates 
all necessary tables, stored procedures etc.

Please avoid embedding huge scripts into the report.

I also can't reproduce this. This script:



Outputs bool(false) and bool(true), which is what I'd expect.
