Request #69460 Don't output shebang line

When a PHP script is executed via the command-line, the "shebang" (which looks like this:)


Is not printed to the console.

However, when executing a PHP script via a web server such as mod_php, etc., the line IS output to the browser, though I am sure this is very, very rarely (if ever) desirable behaviour.

Removing this inconsistency would allow a single PHP script to operate in both "web page" and command-line modes depending on how it is executed.

This feature request has previously been declared "Related To" Bugs #54588 and #64488, and then a "Duplicate" of #31563, which was then set to "won't fix" with a reason of "Windows XP reached end of support on April 8th, 2014"

I believe that misses the point (as operating system is not inherently a factor) and, infact potentially makes this issue even /more/ important for cross-platform compatibility reasons.

This issue has indeed been reported several times. Maybe the best
analysis so far is contained in #60677, so I'm marking this ticket
as duplicate. Actually, I think the behavior is a bug.

Related to bug #60677.
