And so it ends...(here is what the PGP bug people had to say about it...)

 Status:           Bogus
 Bug Type:         PHP options/info functions
 Operating System: Win2K
 PHP Version:      4.2.2
 New Comment:

Changing the value of magic_quotes_gpc is only effective if it's set
_before_ the script starts (e.g. via php.ini, httpd.conf or .htaccess). In
the CVS version you should get a warning if you try to set it in a script

I understand that, and it makes sense that a command in a file wouldn't
affect the settings, but in the manual, it says magic_quotes_gpc is a user
level setting, meaning you can use ini_set to control it.

We're trying to get this to work on IIS or without an .htaccess file. The OP
cannot change PHP.ini, either.

Okay...what's the point of being able to set magic_quotes_gpc within a
script, but it will have _no_ effect. That's really stupid. They should just
change the manual page to say PHP_INI_PERDIR...
