From manual page:

Passing in an array of PCRE regular expressions to the constructor of APCUIterator as first argument never return any result.

Test script:


echo (new APCUIterator("/^Test$/"))->getTotalCount();// 1
echo (new APCUIterator(["Test"]))->getTotalCount();// 1
echo (new APCUIterator(["/^Test$/"]))->getTotalCount();// 0 -> should be 1

Expected result:
In my understanding of the documentation, we should be able to pass as first argument an array filled with regexp to find matching entries in apcu's stored keys.

From looking at the code, it appears that the array form expects
exactly matching strings, not regexps.

Thanks for your response.

If it's the intented behaviour, then it should be clarified in the doc, with an example, beacause the part about the array is pretty confusing to me for the $search argument description : "A PCRE regular expression that matches against APCu key names, either as a string for a single regular expression, or as an array of regular expressions."

When I use new APCUIterator("/^prom:./")) init APCUIterator. I get an error 502, And my php version is 7.1.19 and APCU version is 5.1.17.
