Thanks for the response - I found the answer to Q1 - the problem of formatting newlines - I was running the code outputting to browser - and got lazy on some - just pasting the PHP manual examples code directly, without bracketing with HTML tags such as <pre> ... etc. Of course that won't produce the formatting I was expecting and as shown in the manual. What confused me? - some example code includes the <pre> HTML tags and produce formatted output! So, I feel really stupid about that one. Perhaps there is a PHP manual update project in here somewhere to normalize the examples code so they can be run to get the output as printed.
Q2 re the undefined function - fnmatch() - still needs an explanation. I need to get PHP's fnmatch() function, Xdebug, and iMagick's readImage() function working in the same setup.

Using Xammplite_Win_32_1.7.1, PHP ver 5.2.9 reports fnmatch() is not a defined function and I haven't been able to get Xdebug functioning on this setup. readImage() works just fine.

Using Xammp_Win_32_1.7.3, PHP ver 5.3.1 fnmatch() is defined and Xdebug works 'out of the box' but Apache crashes when iMagick readImage() is called. I think I should communicate this to the extension author. Will post here if I get a result.

Thanks again, Peter.

Are you outputting to browser or to command line? Browsers have a
habit of ignoring whitespaces, reducing them to one whitespace
character regardless of their type or how many.
