I am getting the following error:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\view.php on line 4

On line:
$result = mysql_query(select * from guestbook) or die (mysql_error());

And I have no idea where the T_STRING is coming from. I know this is probably some little detail that I am over looking, but I would appreciate any help.
