Yes your right, that’s exactly the problem. I didn’t even realize he was doing that.
By including the PHP file via HTTP, you are including the OUTPUT of the PHP file, not the actual PHP file itself. e.g. by including a file with the following code: <?PHP print 'Hello'; ?> you would be including the word "Hello" as PHP code, which is obviously going to cause a syntax error. -----Original Message----- From: Dagfinn Reiersøl [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Friday, January 16, 2004 10:18 AM To: PHP General Subject: Re: [PHP] Syntax Error -> This is WEIRD!

I have the feeling it would be interesting to know whether that would work or not. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
