Bug #63943 Bad warning text from strpos() on empty needle
Submitted: 2013-01-08 17:18 UTC Modified: -
From: matteosistisette at gmail dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: *General Issues
PHP Version: 5.5Git-2013-01-08 (Git) OS:
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2013-01-08 17:18 UTC] matteosistisette at gmail dot com
Description:
------------
strpos($haystack,$needle);

When $needle is empty (""), the text of the warning is unclear, it says "empty 
delimiter". The word "delimiter" makes no sense in this context.

Test script:
---------------
strpos("lkjsbsjfdb", "");

Expected result:
----------------
Warning: strpos(): Empty needle in XXX on line YYY

Actual result:
--------------
Warning: strpos(): Empty delimiter in XXX on line YYY
