I installed phpdev423.exe.  This installs apache, mysql,php4,phpmyadmin.  This install was made on WinME and all tested fine.  I then started writing php script to read a dbase file and create a mysql database, create tables, and write dbase data into tables. Open of dbase file worked fine. Connect to MYSQL worked fine. Get number of dbase records worked fine.  THEN I tried dbase_get_header_info() so that I could have the script create the table.  This function was not recognized.  I checked spelling carefully against documentation(php_manual.chm).  That function is documented but seems not to exist. I upgraded php to 4.3.2 and then to latest CVS snapshot. php_dbase.dll is the exact same size in all versions. 

Reproduce code:
$dbheaders = dbase_get_header_info($dbfile) or die("Error! Could not get header info.");

This code didn't produce my die error message. It said instead that the function was unknown.

Expected result:
I expect to get header info as documented in php_manual.chm.

This includes column name, field length, etc.

Actual result:
Error message.

function unknown

This new function will be in PHP 5, not in PHP 4.
