PHP reports a "parser error" in a function (at the very start of it) when I specified a default value and it is another variable (not null).
For example
#function UltimiGiorni($tabella,$foo="no",$quanti="$voci_per_pagina")
doens't work (parser error)
while
function UltimiGiorni($tabella,$foo="no",$quanti=0)
is OK.

This isn't a bug; it just doesn't work that way. For one thing, should the 
default be the value as evaluated when the function is parsed, or it's 
called? 

For more information, see the manual:

 http://www.php.net/manual/functions.arguments.php3
