Warning: Illegal or truncated character in input: offset 104, state=0 in /mnt/data/www/ on line 45 Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /mnt/data/www/ on line 45


The problem is the german "?"

else echo "&nbsp;<br /><h2 style=\"color:red\">Derzeit stehen keine Entwicklungsprojekte auf dieser Domain zur Verf?gung !</h2><br />&nbsp;";

Reproduce code:
 $result = @ini_set ("url_rewriter.tags", "");
 // Inhalt des Ordners zwischenspeichern
 settype ($dir_list, "array");
 $verz = opendir ("./");
 while ($file = readdir ($verz))
  if (@is_dir($file) && $file !="." && $file !=".." && !stristr($file, "thevolumesetting") && !stristr($file, "network trash")) $dir_list[] = $file;
 closedir ($verz);

 if (!empty($dir_list))
  foreach ($dir_list as $dir)
   echo "<a href=\"./" . $dir . "/\">" . strtolower($dir) . "</a><br>";
 else echo "&nbsp;<br /><h2 style=\"color:red\">Derzeit stehen keine Entwicklungsprojekte auf dieser Domain zur Verf?gung !</h2><br />&nbsp;";

Expected result:
A simple html page

Actual result:
a strange parse error

I associate myself with this bug report. I had on my page the ? symbol and the ? symbol and became mad to find what was wrong until I read this bug submission and thought that also the ? and the ? sign are not standard characters.

At the moment I solved replacing them with &copy; and &reg; but it is a bit of pain this thing, it's better to rather change or replace it with 5.2 behaviour.

<OT>Php 6 is breaking several compatibilities with old scripts (and by old I mean v5 not v4 or v3). I am not a php coder so I don't know what's behind, but being a webmaster and programmer I can say that this is very ODD.
In less than 3 months, with standard configuration i used for years, my script had to be totally revised, phpMyAdmin was broken until a fix was done in v3, phpBB has some problems in reading private messages (v3.02 gold) and I suspect also many other scripts had problems.
Wouldn't be better to add a switch in php.ini of 6.0 to keep the old 5.2 behaviour, for backwards compatibility?
