Bug #2988 "property of non-object" notice when passing table name to tableInfo()

Description: ------------ The first line of the DB_mysql::tableInfo appears to be incorrect. It reads: if (isset($result->result)) { But when $result is a string, isset($result->result) returns true: bash-2.05b$ cat test.php <? $string = "Hello"; var_dump(isset($string->result)); ?> bash-2.05b$ php test.php bool(true) which means it never hits the "elseif (is_string($result))" case. So perhaps it should be: if (is_object($result) && isset($result->result)) -or- if (is_object($result) && array_key_exists('result', $result)) or something along those lines. bash-2.05b$ php -v PHP 5.0.3 (cli) (built: Dec 16 2004 22:01:30) Copyright (c) 1997-2004 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.0.3, Copyright (c) 1998-2004 Zend Technologies

Interesting. PHP changed it's behavior. I'll look into this and get it resolved.

Notice that this complements the reported bug in php 5.0.3: Which was caused by an attempt to fix this bug: In CVS 'dmitry' added a automatic typecasting of the offset, so in the exmaple "result" is casted to an int (0) and therefore making isset($result[0]) true.

Change summary from "DB_mysql::tableInfo bug fix" to ""property of non-object" notice when passing table name to tableInfo()." Done because this issue applies to most drivers in DB, not just MySQL and better describe the problem. Also, PHP version in header was mistyped as 5.0.2, but this behavioral change arose in 5.0.3 (which is the version noted in the bug report itself)

Yeah I didn't see a "5.0.3" in the dropdown menu when submitting the bug which is why I included the "php -v" output. Thanks for checking this out.

The underlying PHP bug has been resolved in CVS and will be incorporated in the 5.0.4 release.

Also adjusted DB's tableInfo() methods so they'll work with 5.0.3's bug.
