IntlPartsIterator key is wrong for KEY_LEFT/KEY_RIGHT #7734

IntlPartsIterator key is wrong for KEY_LEFT/KEY_RIGHT #7734

When creating an IntlPartsIterator with a type of IntlPartsIterator::KEY_LEFT or IntlPartsIterator::KEY_RIGHT, the returned key value is off by one after the first key. So for the string "ABC" you would get 0, 2, 3, instead of the expected 0, 1, 2.

Apparently the first example is resolved now on master.

The second case is also fixed, except that there's a different issue where index is rewritten to -1 when rewinding the iterator.

iter->index = -1; /* will be set to 0 before using next handler */

Usually the index is computed in get_current_key but in this case we're relying on index as a storage mechanism. One way to solve this is to store an index_right in zoi_break_iter_parts which does not get reset after rewind.

But that's not very clean either. I don't see any other ways to solve this.

Fun fact, IntlPartsIterator::KEY_RIGHT is used a total of 0 times on GitHub.

Feel free to close this and spin off a new bug with the rewind behavior, if you think that would be better. I'm curious to know what fixed this on master as it sounds like it was unintentionally fixed.

I did some more digging, the reason this works on master is because we changed how get_iterator is inherited.


if (class_type->parent && (class_type->parent->ce_flags & ZEND_ACC_REUSE_GET_ITERATOR)) {
/* Keep the inherited get_iterator handler. */
class_type->ce_flags |= ZEND_ACC_REUSE_GET_ITERATOR;
} else {
class_type->get_iterator = zend_user_it_get_iterator;


/* None of the Iterator methods have been overwritten, use inherited get_iterator(). */
if (funcs_ptr->zf_rewind->common.scope != class_type &&
funcs_ptr->zf_valid->common.scope != class_type &&
funcs_ptr->zf_key->common.scope != class_type &&
funcs_ptr->zf_current->common.scope != class_type &&
funcs_ptr->zf_next->common.scope != class_type) {
return SUCCESS;
/* One of the Iterator methods has been overwritten,
* switch to zend_user_it_get_iterator. */

ZEND_ACC_REUSE_GET_ITERATOR was not set for the IntlPartsIterator class which caused get_iterator to be reset to zend_user_it_get_iterator. Adding this flag solves the first issue. The issue described above remains and needs to be solved separately.
