[xdebug-general] Re: eval seems to always give "error evaluating code"

I very much appreciate the fast response. Unfortunately, I'm getting
the same result, even with the exact string you specified:

DBG: <init fileuri="file:///C%3A%5CApache2%5Chtdocs%5Cindex.php"
language="PHP" protocol_version="1.0" appid="2448" idekey="test"> ...
etc ...</init>
IDE: eval -i 1 -- ZWNobyAnaGVsbG8nOw==
DBG: <response command="eval" transaction_id="1" status="starting"
reason="ok"><error code="206"><message><![CDATA[error evaluating

I've tested the eval() function in a php script, just in case I had
somehow disabled it in the .ini file, but it works fine. I manually
inspected the actual 34 bytes of the string (counting \0) to make sure
I was sending that exact data, and I am. And again, I tested this
farther along during script execution, during a breakpoint, with the
same result.

An excerpt from my php.ini file:



Am I missing a required setting there? Other commands work fine (Run,
step into, over, property_get, etc.). It's funny that property_get
works fine, because as I understand it, that is done internally using

Thanks again for your help,
