Description: ------------ If the CSV file contains a row with the first field empty then the whole row is shifted with 1 column and the first comma appears in the second field. Test script: --------------- At line 240 the test logic needed change. Was: if (!$in_quote && ($c == $conf['sep'] || $c == "\n" || $c == "\r") && $prev != '') { Changed to: if (!$in_quote && ((($c == "\n" || $c == "\r") && $prev != '') || ($c == $conf['sep']) ) ) { After the modification the

I'm wondering, to you specify the field count your self or do you use the discoverFormat() method ?

Btw I constructed this easy little example: require_once 'File/CSV.php'; $file = 'test.csv'; $conf = File_CSV::discoverFormat($file); print "Format:\n"; print_r(File_CSV::read('test.csv', $conf)); print "\n"; print_r(File_CSV::read('test.csv', $conf)); print "\n"; print_r(File_CSV::read('test.csv', $conf)); print "\n"; print_r(File_CSV::read('test.csv', $conf)); print "\n"; test.csv contains: "","foo" "foo","" ,foo foo, the output is: Array ( [0] => [1] => foo ) Array ( [0] => foo [1] => ) Array ( [0] => [1] => foo ) Array ( [0] => foo [1] => ) which leads me to think there is no bug, but if you have a test case that can trigger this error then let me know.

I have encountered this issue and put modified versions of pear/File/tests/CSV/bug5257.{phpt,csv} at . tentative-fix-1.patch, which works for me and passes all tests that pass in CVS HEAD on my machine, removes the $prev != '' case instead of adding a test as in the reporter's fix.

Here is a test example.csv: Field 0, Field 1, Field 2, Field 3, Field 4 ,Field 1,,Field 3, bugTest.php: class bugTest extends PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase { function testParseFileStartingWithADelimiter() { require_once 'File/CSV.php'; $config = File_CSV::discoverFormat('example.csv'); while ($res = File_CSV::readQuoted('example.csv', $config)) $result[] = $res; $expected = array(0 => array(0 => 'Field 0', 1 => 'Field 1', 2 => 'Field 2', 3 => 'Field 3', 4 => 'Field 4'), 1 => array(0 => '',1 => 'Field 1',2 => '',3 => 'Field 3',4 => '')); $this->assertEquals($expected, $result); } }

Stephan, your fix does not make your test case pass but also no other test cases started failing. Are you sure it passed for you with this fix ?
 [2008-07-07 02:53 UTC] dufuz (Helgi Þormar Þorbjörnsson)
Actually I have to take that partially back, Stephans test case still fails, Susans passes now if there is a new line after all the CSV data, not if there is no new line, weird huh - But I'm keeping the change in anyway, thanks! Still have the same question for you Stephan, you sure that was the only change you did to get it to pass

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
