the following Code makes a parse error:

$array[0][0] = ' ';

if ( empty( chop($array[0][0]) ) )
echo 'none';

Error Output:
Parse error: parse error, expecting `T_VARIABLE' or `'$'' in /usr/home/enrico/public_html/oscommerce/import_hersteller.php on line 19

I changed my Code to...

if ( chop($array[0][0]) == '' )

and thats ok.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

empty only works on variables, not on function results. See
