Summary0001903: Constants should always be available, regardless of which mode Xdebug is in

When running phpunit with code coverage, it runs these checks as documented --

But these variables are not defined with using XDebug 3 with phpunit 8.x, on php7.4

/app # vendor/bin/phpunit -v --coverage-text --coverage-clover  ../build/logs/clover.xml 
PHPUnit 8.5.8 by Sebastian Bergmann and contributors.

Runtime:       PHP 7.4.12 with Xdebug 3.0.0
Configuration: /app/phpunit.xml

Use of undefined constant XDEBUG_CC_UNUSED - assumed 'XDEBUG_CC_UNUSED' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP)
/app # grep -r 'XDEBUG_CC_UNUSED' .
./vendor/phpunit/php-code-coverage/src/Driver/Xdebug.php:            \xdebug_start_code_coverage(XDEBUG_CC_UNUSED | XDEBUG_CC_DEAD_CODE);

I found no mention of XDEBUG_CC_DEAD_CODE or XDEBUG_CC_UNUSED being removed in the update logs:

Steps To Reproduce

Build a new site with phpunit 8.x, attempt to run a unit test with code-coverage enabled.

Additional Information

I was able to successfully perform unit tests by defining XDEBUG_CC_DEAD_CODE and XDEBUG_CC_UNUSED myself within my bootstrap file.

I tried to search the bugtracker for 'XDEBUG_CC_DEAD_CODE' but I couldn't find a good search. And Google'ing did not show anything in the last week ( "XDEBUG_CC_DEAD_CODE")

TagsNo tags attached.
Operating System
PHP Version7.4.10-7.4.19

Oh, I see now. This now only available with XDEBUG_MODE=coverage. I'll close this issue -- if I can find out how.

It would appear I cannot. Feel free to close this issue, and add something on the documentation about this change, please. Thank you.

I think it's a valid report. The constants should always be available.
