Problem with func_get_args() in PHP 5.2.x

Postby springday » Fri Sep 14, 2012 2:20 pm

Today I received an error message on a host running PHP 5.2.x, referring to a line in DAO.inc.php:

Code: Select all
return call_user_func_array(array($this->getDataSource(), 'Concat'), func_get_args());

It told me that func_get_args() is not allowed to be used as an argument. I checked php.net, they say this function can only be used as an argument starting from PHP 5.3. So as long as OJS wants to support versions prior to PHP 5.3 there should be a work around, as suggested in the PHP article http://de3.php.net/manual/en/function.func-get-arg.php

Hi Kai,

The occasional strangeness of PHP strikes again. I've posted a fix for this at http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=7912; the same pattern doesn't appear to have been used elsewhere in the codebase. This is now listed on OJS 2.4.0 recommended patches.
