Bug #76704 mb_detect_order return value varies based on argument type
Submitted: 2018-08-04 00:13 UTC Modified: 2018-08-04 12:24 UTC

Description:
------------
The function mb_detect_order() can receive either a comma separated list of encodings or an array of encodings. However, its return value varies based on whether it is given a string or an array that contain the same values.

Test script:
---------------
https://3v4l.org/gJfAO

Expected result:
----------------
mb_detect_order() should return the same value regardless of which type is used for the encoding_list parameter. HHVM seems to not be affected by this.

Actual result:
--------------
When given a string, mb_detect_order() will return true if it finds at least one supported encoding in the list.

When given an array, mb_detect_order() will return false if it finds any non-supported encoding.

mb_detect_order() logic is broken and needed to be fixed.
It doesn't work as it should with multiple encodings since it is implemented.
