$a = 0;
$b = 2;

$c = $a % $b


// $b will be set to 0.  does nasty thing to for loops :)

not really sure what was configured at compiletime, was from the FreeBSD ports collection, can dig it up if it's relevant.

same with php.ini.

no gdb, as there's no crash.

This works for me (tm) just fine.  ie. prints 2.

Could you please try again (with the script below)?


$a = 0;
$b = 2;

$c = $a % $b;

use == to compare, = is for assignments

if(($i % $rowcount) == 0)
