The following script produces a "Parse error, unexpected 
T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in ..." message: 
class A {} 
class B { 
    var $name = "A"; 
    function test() { 
        new $this->name; 
The following change will succeed: 
- new $this->name; 
+ $tmp = $this->name; 
+ new $tmp;

PHP Version 4.4.2

mysql_connect("localhost", "username", "password") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("database") or die(mysql_error());

$doc = new DOMDocument();

$links = $doc->getElementsByTagName('a');

for ($i = 0; $i < $links->length; $i++) {
  $value = addslashes($links->item($i)->nodeValue);
  $href = addslashes($links->item($i)->getAttribute('href'));
        mysql_query("INSERT INTO bookmarks(url, title) VALUES('$href', '$value' ) ")
        or die(mysql_error());  
    echo $i . " Bookmarks Imported";

I get the same error. On line 11 & 12 where $value & $href exist.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in ...

It works in PHP5, but not in php4.4.2
