Good day, eval() is a very powerful function. You should be careful that users can't find some way to execute arbitrary code by providing input that your program did not expect.
Also, if your string doesn't have the correct syntax, your program will terminate. ============================ Darren Gamble Planner, Regional Services Shaw Cablesystems GP 630 - 3rd Avenue SW Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2P 4L4 (403) 781-4948 -----Original Message----- From: Erik Price [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: Thursday, March 28, 2002 3:20 PM To: Darren Gamble Cc: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Re: [PHP] XSLT; XML => PHP code On Thursday, March 28, 2002, at 04:52 PM, Darren Gamble wrote: > Good day, > > To have PHP evaluate string contents as an expression, use eval(). Thanks for the pointer, I have never used this function before.

I will have to experiment with this and make sure it works right. > The usual disclaimer comes with this function... be careful. (... of what?)
