The "private" keyword was added in PHP 5. PHP 4 doesn't have visibility identifiers. In PHP 4 you have to use "var", which is then always public.

Or you could just use PHP 5 instead of a dead language. :-)

Hey all,

Is there any reason why this shouldn't work correctly on a server
running PHP 4.4.7:

class testClass
    private $foo = 'bar';

print 'wtf';

I would at the very least expect to see the 'wtf' printed out. I've got
a whole class I've written that works fine in PHP 5, but on PHP 4
server, it does nothing with even this simple example.

Any ideas?
