I programmed a webforum in PHP and ran it on my linux system in which it ran fine.  I then moved the system to win 98 without changing the code and am having problems with writing and reading to files.  I do not suspect the code.  To check this I created the following code to test it:
        <title>PHP Test</title>

$filePointer = fopen("test.txt","w")
echo "\$filePointer=$filePointer<br>";

    fwrite($filePointer,"this is a test");
I received the following error: 
Parse error: parse error in c:\program files\apache group\apache\htdocs\php\test.php3 on line 9

I suspect a configuration in apache that disallows the php code to write to files.  I'm using Apache 1.3.6.  Are there any known issues with it or is there a setting I have to change?  Any help is appreciated.

We are sorry, but can not support PHP 3 related problems anymore.
Momentum is gathering for PHP 5, and we think supporting PHP 3 will
lead to a waste of resources which we want to put into getting PHP 5
ready. Ofcourse PHP 4 will will continue to be supported for the
forseeable future.

i'd guess some invisible windows control character slipped into that file that confuses the parser on unix ...
