$ php -q
<? error_reporting(E_ALL);
echo "{@$array['key']}"; ?>
<br />
<b>Parse error</b>:  parse error, expecting `T_STRING' or `T_VARIABLE' or `T_NUM_STRING' in <b>-</b> on line <b>2</b><br />
-(2) : Parse error - parse error, expecting `T_STRING' or `T_VARIABLE' or `T_NUM_STRING'

$ php -q
<? error_reporting(E_ALL);
echo "{@$foo}\n";
<br />
<b>Warning</b>:  Undefined variable:  foo in <b>-</b> on line <b>2</b><br />
-(2) : Warning - Undefined variable:  foo

Would be nice to support the @ operator in those cases too.

what sorts of errors aren't being suppressed now?  If the variable doesn't exist, nothing is output, and in a function context, FALSE is returned.  I don't see the need... perhaps you could explain it?

Thanks for the post, I'll try to sort this out later when I've handed in all my essays and dissertations because my study is starting to piss me off. I will most likely seek help from uk coursework help who will help me with my written work, I want to quickly deal with this problem
