Bug #887 Dosn't work at all ;-) Forget O_BINARY

Status: Closed Package: dBase related
PHP Version: 3.0.5 OS: Windows 95
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

There is a little bug in dbase function (dbase_create and dbase_open) when running PHP on Windows 95. Those functions open the file without the flag O_BINARY=0x8000 and dbase file are binary files. So when a record is added, the database is definitively corrupted.

I have found that I can pass 0x8002 to dbase_open, but there is no way to make dbase_create working properly, so I have had to modify the php3_dbase.dll.

But I think it's better to correct the bug ;-)

This append possibly on others database functions type, but I had tested only this one.

For example :

========= php-3.0.5/functions/dbase.c:500

    if ((fd = open(filename->value.str.val,
#if (WIN32|WINNT)
		O_RDWR|O_CREAT, 0644)) < 0) {

========= php-3.0.5/dbase/dbf_head.c:229

#if (WIN32|WINNT)
    o_flags |= O_BINARY;
    if ((fd = open(cp, o_flags)) < 0) {
