1 1. strrpos() and strripos() now use the entire string as a needle. Be aware

10 Will give you different results. The former returns 3 while the latter
11 returns false rather than the position of the last occurrence of 'D'.
12 The same applies to strripos().
13
14 2. Illegal use of string offsets causes E_ERROR instead of E_WARNING.

24 3. array_merge() was changed to accept only arrays. If a non-array variable is
25 passed, a E_WARNING will be thrown for every such parameter. Be careful
26 because your code may start emitting E_WARNING out of the blue.

28 4. Be careful when porting from ext/mysql to ext/mysqli. The following
29 functions return NULL when no more data is available in the result set
30 (ext/mysql's functions return FALSE).

2004-01-05 another example
42 6. Starting PHP 5.0.0 the T_ML_CONSTANT constant is no longer defined by the
43 ext/tokenizer extension. If error_reporting is set to E_ALL notices will
44 be produced. Instead of T_ML_CONSTANT for /* */ the T_COMMENT constant
45 is used, thus both // and /* */ are resolved as the T_COMMENT constant.

2004-01-17 adding info about $argc and $argv in CLI mode

2004-01-17 use Rasmus' words
49 7. $_SERVER should be populated with argc and argv if variables_order
50 includes "S". If you have specifically configured your system to not
51 create $_SERVER, then of course it shouldn't be there. The change was to
52 always make argc and argv available in the CLI version regardless of the
53 variables_order setting. As in, the CLI version will now always populate
54 the global $argc and $argv variables.

56 8. In some cases classes must be declared before used. It only happens only
57 if some of the new features of PHP 5 are used. Otherwise the behaviour is
58 the old.
59 Example 1 (works with no errors):

69 interface b{
70 }
71 class a implements b {
72 }
73 ?>

80 the previous behaviour - the class name is lowercased. Expect the
81 same behaviour from get_parent_class() when applicable.

108 Possible solution is to search for get_class() and get_parent_class() in
109 all your scripts and use strtolower().
110
111 10. get_class_methods() returns the names of the methods of a class as they
112 declared. In PHP4 the names are all lowercased.
113 Example code :
114 <?php
115 class Foo{
116 function doFoo(){}
117 function hasFoo(){}
118 }
119 var_dump(get_class_methods("Foo"));
120 ?>
121 Output (PHP4):
122 array(2) {
123 [0]=>
124 string(5) "dofoo"
125 [1]=>
126 string(6) "hasfoo"
127 }
128 Output (PHP5):
129 array(2) {
130 [0]=>
131 string(5) "doFoo"
132 [1]=>
133 string(6) "hasFoo"
134 }
135
136 11. Assignment $this is impossible. Starting PHP 5.0.0 $this has special
137 meaning in class methods and is recognized by the PHP parser. The latter
138 will generate a parse error when assignment to $this is found
139 Example code :
140 <?php
141 class Foo {
142 function assignNew($obj) {
143 $this = $obj;
144 }
145 }
146 $a = new Foo();
147 $b = new Foo();
148 $a->assignNew($b);
149 echo "I was executed\n";
150 ?>
151 Output (PHP 4):
152 I was executed
153 Output (PHP 5):
154 PHP Fatal error: Cannot re-assign $this in /tmp/this_ex.php on line 4
