Bug #14492 Parse error is appearing in transliterated Hebrew T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM

I left out some double quotes in the following statement:
 if (empty($d_value)) {$d_value =  ;}

This produced the following error message:
Parse error: parse error, expecting `T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM' or `'('' in
/home/esrig/public_html/macweb/tcfocal.php on line 213

I recognize this as a Hebrew phrase:
paamayim means two times
nekudotayim means two punctuations or two vowels
Probably means missing double quotes

My question is, why am I getting an error message in Hebrew?

It means :: , and it's supposed to be a joke...

Israelis have odd sense of humour I guess. :)

The parse-errors PHP generates aren't useful anyway. Someone should really take some time to improve them...

Humor or not, lets close it :)

BTW, there is a spelling mistake in the parse error, it should be T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDATAYIM (in hebrew, the 'double' form is just the original noun + the 'ayim' suffix and 'nekuda' is the single form ['nekudot' is the plural form]).

Unless you guys start offering users some sort of localization, that message needs to be replaced with its English translation...

Doesn't look very professional...
