Description:
------------
make fails due to RETURN_STRING() expecting 1 parameter (2 provided). This issue affects php 7.x.

Removing the second parameter allows the installation of the package.

Test script:
---------------
Patched the installation, replaced:

RETURN_STRING(hash, 0);

with 

RETURN_STRING(hash);

in both occurrences.

Further testing showed that the package was incompatible with PHP 7 due to the char[] parameter length being expected to be passed as int, as it was in PHP < 7. Since PHP 7.0 size_t is passed along.

The php7_upgrade patch resolves this.

Looks like you use an older ext version. The latest is PHP 7 compatible.

Thanks.

Could you point us to the newest version? Took 1.0.4 from here:

https://pecl.php.net/package/ssdeep

Oh, indeed, the fixed version is unreleased yet. See ssdeep master.

Thanks.

I thought a release had been made after those changes, apologies I'll put together a release and update this ticket when it's available.
 [2018-02-20 02:41 UTC] treffynnon@php.net
I've prepared a release and tagged it. Unfortunately, it looks like pecl.php.net is currently down so I cannot publish the release just yet. Will update when it's available.
 [2018-02-20 08:08 UTC] andras dot iklody at circl dot lu
Thanks a million, looking forward to the release!
 [2018-02-20 23:02 UTC] treffynnon@php.net
OK, looks like the release is now available. Please give it a go and feedback on how it goes here.
