Bug #64850 Extra whitespace before function links
Submitted: 2013-05-15 21:35 UTC Modified: 2013-12-30 06:58 UTC

Status: Closed Package: Doc Build problem
PHP Version: Irrelevant OS:
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2013-05-15 21:35 UTC]
When rendering <function> tags, a space is added before the anchor tag.
This was a deliberate choice (see comment below) but affects areas other
than the function/method synopsis.

The Package_PHP_XHTML::format_function() method says:
    // Leading space intional for methodname as phpdoc doesn't have a
    // space between <type> and the <methodname> in methodsynopsis

However, this affects other uses of <methodname> and <function> and is 
particularly noticeable when the function name is written in parentheses. 


    "for future use ( mysql_close() will not close links"

    "from COM_LIST_FIELD ( mysql_list_fields()) and the"

    "sent by the server ( ldap_control_paged_result_response())."

The leading space should be removed. Instead, a space should be added
to the rendered HTML only where it is needed: after rendering the
<type>, before a <methodname>, in a <methodsynopsis>.

The fix for this bug has been committed. Since the websites are not directly
updated from the repository, the fix might need some time to spread
across the globe to all mirror sites, including itself.

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

Sorry.. Don't know why I haven't looked at this category for 6months.. pulled now atleast.
