Bug #9237 date function parameters won't work on PWS
Submitted: 2001-02-13 05:26 UTC Modified: 2001-02-20 02:28 UTC

Private report: No CVE-ID: None

On linux (built in) and IIS 4.0 (cgi vers) on nt4.0 wrkst i can use function for example:
 function getThisMonth(){
  $dat=getdate();
  return $dat[mon];
 }
 without problem.
On pws it reproduces error (description I don't remember -> it happens at home)
I should put mon in double quotes '"'. Then it works.
This error happens with other parameters like nmon, year ...
With quotes it works on linux and IIS 4.0 too.

Thanks,
Andris

I bet the text of the errmsg is somethign like this:

Warning:  Use of undefined constant x - assumed 'x' in ... on line ...

this is caused by error_reporting set high enough to trigger this warning.

Yes, the message I received is like this ...
I didn't receive that before.

Suggestions: don't set error reporting by default so high in installation wizard for win32 binaries.

Thanx,
Andris

The usage of $dat[mon] is not the way it shoudl work. Without the "'s, it's not possible for PHP to see whether mon is a constant, or an index. Therefore you should always use "mon" if you want mon to be the index of your array.
