when the following code is run w/ display_errors on and error_reporting 65527 the following error is generated:

Fatal error:  Cannot redeclare class testclass in
/opt/apache2/htdocs/chat/debug/crash.php on line 0

The script stops execution immediately after the first (and only) definition of testClass


class arrayClass {

 var $myArray;

              function add($key, $val) {
                              $this->myArray[$key] = $val;

              function output() {
                              echo "size of myArray is ".sizeof($this->myArray)."\n\n<br><br>";
                              foreach($this->myArray as $k => $v) {
                                              echo "$k => $v<br>\n";


/* putting this call here would execute php info correctly */
/* phpinfo(); */

/* execution aborts after compiling this class?? */
class testClass {

              var $myArrayClass;

 /* constructor ... */
              function testClass() {
                              $this->myArrayClass = new arrayClass;


/* the script never reaches this point, the server simply returns
    document contained no data                                                                      */

class mainClass {

              var $myTestClass;

              function newClass() {
                              $this->myTestClass = new testClass;
                              return $this->myTestClass->myArrayClass;

              function output() {

$myMainClass = new mainClass;

TestClass was a built-in class, and thus you can't redeclare it.
In the current CVS it's renamed to OverloadedTestClass.

The problem with the line number was fixed.
