Description:
------------
---
From manual page: http://www.php.net/function.socket-last-error%23Examples
---
Additional equal sign.

Test script:
---------------
Should be
if ($fp == false) {
    $errorcode = socket_last_error();
    $errormsg = socket_strerror($errorcode);
    
    die("Couldn't create socket: [$errorcode] $errormsg");
}
and not
if ($fp === false) {
    $errorcode = socket_last_error();
    $errormsg = socket_strerror($errorcode);
    
    die("Couldn't create socket: [$errorcode] $errormsg");
}

Expected result:
----------------
Using the old code, no error will be found, and thus, no error will be shown.

Actual result:
--------------
If $fp fails, error code with error message will be displayed.

Looks fine to me: socket_create() returns boolean false on error.
