When using the multi-line echo (here doc syntax) if there are any spaces immediatly following the indenifier, such as here with the space represented by a #

echo <<<EOD#

then php will give the following error message.

Parse error: parse error, expecting `','' or `';''

label should be immediately followed by newline (i.e., no spaces).
