PHP Bugs: #17079: setlocale changes the internal representation of floats

by night.kame, 2 comments

The system uses Oracle for persistence, where the decimal separator is a comma, as is a custom in that country. So numbers came in from Oracle, and then PHP was unable to process them correctly. For example, if a client had a debt of 25,12€, and the client paid 5€, then the comparison ($paid_amount > $debt) said incorrectly that the paid amount was more than the debt. Result: hundreds of wasted man-hours. In the end we recompiled PHP without that "fix".

Oui, chez Zend aussi on aime faire de la grosse daube.

Proposal for Implementing Unicode in PHP - - Steven Wittens

by xeno42
Right now, the message from the PHP developers seems to be that "PHP supports Unicode, but some assembly is required". In fact, it is a lot worse. Please, read on.
