I have a patch for you:

new php_cli.c:

I do it as good as I can. Sorry C is not my favorite language

May be it is difficult to understand me without well formed english.
But Firstly nobody scould you "it is a bug". Edink, you are scound one
telling me that. Please read this lines and do not forget, here is a
human being too, who said "is a feature request".

Secondly it is an undiscussed fact, perl or python use the arguments
from the first line reading itself.

Thirdly perl and python do so on linux and other systems like Mac OS
too. So what is the problem? All I solicit you is to dealing with
arguments from the first line.

php[-cli].ini in PWD. May be the last make the daemon unsecure. If I
could define a config file fixed in the daemon script, security is in
my hand exclusivly.

Seventhly there are no way defining discriminative config files for all
problems, that I would like to handle with PHP when I try to start
processes by script file directly. Or I have to change the directory
each time and need a script starting all written daemons too. Exactly
that (and changing my OS) suggest your answers (partially indirect).

Eighthly it is an undiscussed fact, at start up PHP reads the first
line yet. But the function cli_seek_file_begin() (from php_cli.c)
handle the first line peculiarly. Example: "#!php\rthis text is in the
first line but still displayed\n<?php /* ... */ ?>"

You may right at the point. Yes it is a handicap of the operating
system. Nonetheless we still need it. Please modifie
cli_seek_file_begin() it will parse arguments.

Parsing of the shebang line is a kernel task. Linux supports one
argument, FreeBSD parses them the way you would like. This is not a bug
in PHP.

Please have look in the php_cli.c. The function cli_seek_file_begin
reads already the first line. Why it seems to you PHP could not support
arguments form the first line like Perl?

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the do***entation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

RTFM of your shell system....only one argument is supported in hash
bang lines
