  • If you use
    $pos = index($str, '%');
    everywhere, if your result was a "%" character, you would end up doubly decoding it. You should be using the position of the next occurence of "%" substring, thus, continue from after the previous value of $pos, instead of starting again from the start of the string.

    I have no idea if substr() in this ancient version of the language could actually handle that.
