Unsure if this is a syntax error or a confusion on my part.
Code:
<?
$string = "String of text." .
     " Plus a little more text.";
     " This won't show up but it should be a syntax error.";
echo $string;
?>
This was screwing up one of my query's and I was having an issue locating the problem.

Sorry, but the bug system is not the appropriate forum for asking
support questions. Your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.
For a list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP,
please visit http://www.php.net/support.php

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

set your error reporting to E_ALL
error_reporting(E_ALL);

Apparently this can be done in any language and is just treated as a comment, though i don't quite understand why it's not a syntax error since we already have enough ways to comment.
