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...

Was this ever addressed in future version(s)?
