Subject: Re: [PHP] DOMNode children iteration (was Re: array() returns
something weird)
To: webmas...@strefarytmu.pl

Fatal error: Call to a member function getAttribute() on a non-object in
testme.php on line *121*

I'm using a Apache/2.2.3 (Win32) PHP/5.2.6
Is the script correctly? I have removed the "&" in the loop and the script
returns the attached file.

It looks like a bogus bug?
