I am trying to follow the test script provided here. I've installed an apache web server with PHP version 5.3.25 and created a script with the following code:
<?php // file: test.php $str = quoted_printable_encode(str_repeat("\xf4", 1000)); echo "$str"; ?>
I pointed my browser to "localhost/test.php" and I get a thousand '=F4's, but nothing indicates that PHP crashed or produced a segfault. I've increased the number to 1,000,000 but nothing changed, aside from the number of '=F4's. Has anyone else ever reproduced this or know of any resources with more info besides the page I've linked? I've been scouring Google for more information for weeks, but I only get bug report pages. Thanks.
