That's one way to fix it. Another is to use addcslashes()
instead, but you might have to upgrade your version of php

AFAIK this is not fixed in versoins beyong 4.0.1pl2 which is what I'm using.

I'm using PHP to modify Latex files - particularly to substitute PHP variables with 
values from a database.

Therefore my Latex file could contain:

I read lines from the Latex file and use something like:
$input_line = AddSlashes( fgets($fp));
$str = eval($input_line);

As the input line includes a {$ the eval function assumes an array calculation and the 
{ is left out of the output string.

I've fixed the problem by adding an additional str_replace to escape the { with \{ 

Kind regards
