Since PHP 7.1, when enabling OPCache, the following trivial piece of code crashes:

function f($x, $y){
if($y<0) $x/$y;

Reproduce by enabling OPCache with the following lines in /etc/php/php.ini:

Create the file mentioned above and run it with "php file.php". (You might need to run it a few times; it seems to matter if it's ran from the cached version or not.)

On PHP 7.0, this runs fine. (gives no output as expected)

On PHP 7.1, the following happens:
Floating point exception (core dumped)

Your example makes no sense. First of all, opcache destroys its cache when php exits. Besides that, your example only defines a function and doesn't execute anything.

Exactly: the script does nothing, so it should absolutely not crash.

I don't know what opcache.enable_cli=1 does, but this script crashes with it set to 1, and doesn't with it set to 0.
To be clear: it also crashes when I run the same PHP script through Apache (with OPCache enabled), but I thought this was simpler to reproduce.

> Enables the opcode cache for the CLI version of PHP. This is mostly useful for testing and debugging.

Yes, that seems to be it! Strange I hadn't found those bugs myself...

I have noticed a few issues esp. with Opcache during testing which is why PHP 7.1 was not yet released into [extra] yet. I'll have a look at the recent changes to the Opcache extension and see if it stabilizes.

Confirmed fixed in php 7.1.1RC1-1 :)
