[resolved] [Solved] Invalid CRT Parameter Detected in txp_prefs.php

Though not new to web design and construction, I am new to CMS. I have installed TextPattern without trouble, according to the messages I received during the installation. But, when I direct my browser to TextPattern, these messages appear above the preferences in the ‘Basic’ tab:

Warning: Invalid CRT parameters detected in C:\Apache2\htdocs\textpattern\textpattern\include\txp_prefs.php on line 358

Warning: Invalid CRT parameters detected in C:\Apache2\htdocs\textpattern\textpattern\include\txp_prefs.php on line 360

There are 25 such lines, all referencing one of the same two lines in the PHP file. I have searched the forum, How-To’s and Documentation without finding any reference to this error message. Indeed, I have searched the Internet without finding anything I thought was relevant to this error message.

Can anyone shed some light here? Thanks for your time.

Re: [resolved] [Solved] Invalid CRT Parameter Detected in txp_prefs.php

I meant to include the two lines from txp_prefs.php:

Line 358 $daynum = is_numeric(strftime(‘%e’)) ? ‘%e’ : ‘%d’;

Line 360 $daynumord = is_numeric(substr(trim(strftime(‘%Oe’)), 0, 1)) ? ‘%Oe’ : $daynum;

Re: [resolved] [Solved] Invalid CRT Parameter Detected in txp_prefs.php

Please amend the two offending lines as indicated below and report back on the results:

Line 358:

$daynum = is_numeric(@strftime('%e')) ? '%e' : '%d';

Line 360:

$daynumord = is_numeric(substr(trim(@strftime('%Oe')), 0, 1)) ? '%Oe' : $daynum;

Re: [resolved] [Solved] Invalid CRT Parameter Detected in txp_prefs.php

wet,

That got rid of the error messages. Thanks so much for taking the time to help me with this.

Can you give me an idea of what was going on? I am new to PHP. And, what is a CRT parameter?

Thanks again,

cuervo

PHP passes the format strings %e and %Oe it receives for strftime() on to the underlying C language runtime library which in turn relies on the operating system to do the actual conversion from date values to a human-readable string.

Obviously, operating systems differ in their capabilities in this field, so you received a warning that this particular format strings weren’t understood. We expect that behaviour and use %d as a fallback in that case, but the warnings appeared nevertheless (Although I have never come across them anywhere else…)

By prefixing the strftime() call with @ PHP is instructed to suppress the output of any warnings.

And, what is a CRT parameter?

A parameter passed into one of the functions which constitute the C Language Runtime Library (CRT)

FWIW, I just installed Textpattern for the first time today to give it a try and saw the same errors cuervo saw.
