Description: ------------ I just tried to install this and test it with my setup and I get all kinds of warnings/errors with the most simple script. It appears that this code is not able to work with the error_reporting including E_STRICT in php 5.x which is unfortunate. We require all our code to be clean and spew no errors with error_reporting at E_ALL | E_STRICT This module should be cleaned up to work without spewing when E_STRICT is enabled. thank you. Test script: --------------- <?php require_once "HTTP/Request.php"; $req =& new HTTP_Request("http://www.yahoo.com/"); if (!PEAR::isError($req->sendRequest())) { echo $req->getResponseBody(); } ?> Expected result: ---------------- see yahoo home page contents in output and no Strict Standards: error warnings of Depreciated and so on, see below. Actual result: -------------- Strict Standards: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /opt/local/lib/php/PEAR/HTTP/Request.php on line 402 Strict Standards: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /opt/local/lib/php/PEAR/HTTP/Request.php on line 720 Strict Standards: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /opt/local/lib/php/PEAR/HTTP/Request.php on line 733 Strict Standards: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /opt/local/lib/php/PEAR/HTTP/Request.php on line 778 Strict Standards: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /opt/local/lib/php/PEAR.php on line 569 Strict Standards: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /opt/local/lib/php/PEAR.php on line 572 Strict Standards: Redefining already defined constructor for class Net_URL in /opt/local/lib/php/PEAR/Net/URL.php on line 124 Strict Standards: is_a(): Deprecated.

Fixing E_STRICT errors is not possible as the package should run under PHP4.

Well, coming from other software development arenas that strikes me as a pretty weak excuse. Is there no #ifdef type functionality that can make the code work well in both places? Also, at least some of the E_STRICT things are about optional behaviors that are not necessary in 4.0, at least that's my understanding. For example using $foo =& new blah (); can be replaced with $foo = new blah();, can't it?
