Depreciated PHP function split()

Depreciated PHP function split()

The depreciated PHP function split() is generated by Universal email:

Deprecated: Function split() is deprecated in PHP version 5.3. This is the error message:

C:\Users\Mike\wamp\www\Sites\Testing\WA_Universal_Email\MailFormatting_PHP.php on line 42

I also ran into the same usage of the split() function with the PowerStore2.
The reccommend alternative to the PHP split() function is to replace it with the explode() function, which works fine.

Please review all your software for the use of the PHP split() function and either replace it with the explode() function or some other appropriate fix. I purchased the SuperSite and PowerStore2 and I do not want to have to do this myself everytime I use your products.

Thank you

Since a stable version of PHP 5.3 only just came out in the last couple of days, we have not yet made updates to our extensions. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Please report line numbers and post the code sample when you run into these issues so we can be sure not to miss them when making updates.

Another depreciated function

Found another depreciated function while checking out.

Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in C:\Users\Mike\wamp\www\Sites\PowerStore200\WA_ValidationToolkit\WAVT_Scripts_PHP.php on line 547

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will make sure to have someone look into it.

I'm sure the solution is to replace it with preg() but the arguments would have to change slightly as well.

I'll look up the line and try to figure out the best fix. Thanks again.

Well... it is odd that the php site doesn't even mention it is depricated... I can only imagine that ereg() must be depricated as well.

I see the code is used in our regular expression validation... which makes sense. It appears we actually try to match using both the ereg and preg techniques:

if (!(!$required && $value=="")) {
if (strpos($extraArgs,"i") >= 0) {
$theMatch = eregi($regExStrStripped, $value);
}
else {
$theMatch = ereg($regExStrStripped, $value);
}
if (!$theMatch) {
$theMatch = preg_match($regExStr, $value);
if (!$theMatch) {
$isValid = false;
}
}
}

so the solution is to remove the checks using this type of regular expression match, and leave the preg functions as they are like:

if (!(!$required && $value=="")) {
$theMatch = preg_match($regExStr, $value);
if (!$theMatch) {
$isValid = false;
}
}

a find and replace of those lines should do the trick.

Ray,
Here is a good read on migrating from PHP 5.2x to 5.3 on the php site

You can hide the depreciating warnings by editing php.ini and editing your error reporting

error_reporting =E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED

Hope that helps.
