mcrypt_ecb is used in the first example, however it's listed as a deprecated function.

Currently mcrypt_ecb does not issue an E_DEPRECATED error. The function clearly 
appears to be documented as deprecated, but there is no indication that it has 
been deprecated.

This appears to be a documentation problem. I will review further and fix this to 
reflect the function is not advised rather than deprecated.

Working on resolving this issue completely so that I can update the docs to 
reflect the proper changes. It appears this function was deprecated before PHP 
had E_DEPRECATED level errors. So a patch has been made to get the function 
issuing an E_DEPRECATED level error is in place
src/commit/29a0efccef0ea3843e1b68546bdc255d5b901746 and will update the docs to 
reflect this in the next release.

In the mean time I will remove the example.

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

The source has been patched for mcrypt_ecb() to issue E_DEPRECATED.

Example removed from documentation.
