[drupal-devel] PHP string functions overloading for multibyte
shot at caltha.pl
Wed May 25 12:06:27 UTC 2005
My name is Piotr Szotkowski and I'm a developer responsible for
internationalisation, and, thus, UTF-8 support in the CiviCRM module.
One of the problems I've encountered is that we'd like PHP to overload
the string manipulation functions with their multibyte counterparts
(as per ). Unfortunately, the overloading is possible only at the
directory level, which means we'd have to overload all of the Drupal's
calls, not only CiviCRM's ones.
php_value mbstring.func_overload 7
php_value mbstring.internal_encoding UTF-8
to the end of my /var/www/drupal/.htaccess, every
Drupal page starts with the following warning:
warning: mb_strrpos() [function.mb-strrpos]: Empty
haystack in /var/www/drupal/includes/menu.inc on line 974.
which, of course, breaks any following header() calls.
What do you think about the whole idea of forcing this overload on
Drupal? Is it feasible and I should pursuit the warning (and any other
that follow), or should I simply drop this idea, as it will break Drupal
and/or any popular modules anyway?
// We could rewrite all of our substr(), split(), strpos() calls to
// their mb_* counterparts, the catch is we'd also have to rewrite
// parts of third-party code (like Smarty), and we'd rather try the
// overloading first.
We're using CiviCRM inside Drupal 4.6.0, running on PHP 5 and Apache 2.
