Bug #62499 curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "") returns false
Submitted: 2012-07-07 15:15 UTC Modified: 2012-07-09 02:36 UTC
From: r dot hampartsumyan at gmail dot com Assigned: laruence
Status: Closed Package: cURL related
PHP Version: 5.3.14 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2012-07-07 15:15 UTC] r dot hampartsumyan at gmail dot com
Description:
------------
According to the documentation for the 	CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE option: "The name of the file containing the cookie data. The cookie file can be in Netscape format, or just plain HTTP-style headers dumped into a file. If the name is an empty string, no cookies are loaded, but cookie handling is still enabled." . In previous version (e.g. 5.3.13) curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, "") returned TRUE, but in 5.3.14 it returns FALSE. It seems like a regression caused by the fix of Bug #61948.

Tested on Debian 7 and Ubuntu 12.04.

Test script:
---------------
<?php
$ch = curl_init("http://php.net");
var_dump(curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE, ""));

Expected result:
----------------
bool(true)

Actual result:
--------------
bool(false)
