I just got the latest version of the browsecap.ini file from http://www.cyscape.com/browscap/ and I am getting this error mailed to me by my server. "PHP:  Error parsing /usr/local/lib/browscap.ini on line 6300".  I am not sure what the problem is.  Line 6300 is the last line in the browscap file.  Please advise me on what to do.

Thanks,
Justin Couto

Just edit the file and add a newline after that last line.
This bug also is with php.ini (as the same parser is used for both). 

foobar=<<EOF>> <-- this causes it.

foobar=value<<EOF>> <-- this otoh, works.

Broswecap.ini is not working correctly for me.  When I use it I get this for a response:

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 browser_name_pattern: Mozilla/4\.0.*
parent: Netscape 4.0
browser: Netscape
version: 4.0
majorver: #4
minorver: #0
frames: 1
tables: 1
cookies: 1

vbscript: 
javascript: 1
javaapplets: 1
activexcontrols:

You can see that I am using IE 6 and it is telling me I am using netscape.  Do you know what the problem is?

Thats the environment variables that your browser sends.
Saying that its Mozilla not a PHP bug.
Bogusing.

The problem is that when I use the browsecap function, i am supposed to get a bunch of information back.  I get stuff that tells me I am using netscape 4.0 and I am running IE 6.  If this is working correctly, what good is the browse cap function?

Are you sure it's not the browscap.ini file? 
Anyway, this thing has not worked very well for a long time..

Can you try this again please?  It should work better now and please get an up-to-date browscap.ini at:

http://www.garykeith.com/browsers/downloads.asp

The one at cyscape is outdated by about two years.
