#39920 new defect (bug)

Empty if-statement

Reported by: appchecker Owned by:
Milestone: 4.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.5
Component: Rewrite Rules Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:



In this code fragment:

        if ( $markerdata = explode( "\n", implode( '', file( $filename ) ) ));
                $state = false;

Body of if-statement actually is empty. Probably, semicolon is excess.

Hi @appchecker, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

Good catch, introduced in [1489]. Would be great to have some unit tests for this (related: #26829).

Hi @SergeyBiryukov,

I have added Empty if-statement before foreach otherwise it generates error and adds explode line before the empty statement.
