Description: ------------ Probably this is just a problem with the documentation as there is no usage example of realPath(). I tried several different approaches of using realPath() but everything I tried ended up in an infinite loop. But whatever the purpose of that method may be, it shouldn't result in an inifite loop Reproduce code: --------------- echo File_Util::realPath("."); echo File_Util::realPath(".."); echo File_Util::realPath("./home"); echo File_Util::realPath("home"); Expected result: ---------------- ? the purpose of the method is not documented yet. Actual result: -------------- nothing

This bug has been fixed in CVS. In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the end of next Sunday (CET) on In case this was a website problem, the change will show up on the website in short time. Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PEAR better.

Just a note: File_Util::realPath() is for building full paths for non-existent paths.
