Bug #5806 "Parse error" reporting in php-4.0.1pl2 which was working fine in php-3.0.9
Submitted: 2000-07-27 07:20 UTC Modified: 2000-07-27 08:41 UTC
From: ssh at baba9 dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Scripting Engine problem
PHP Version: 4.0.1pl2 OS: Linux and Free-bsd
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2000-07-27 07:20 UTC] ssh at baba9 dot com
include( "" );

class DB_Ads extends DB_Sql {
	var $Host = $GLOBALS["CF"]["MYSQL_SERVER"];
	var $User = $GLOBALS["CF"]["MYSQL_USER_NAME"];
	var $Password = $GLOBALS["CF"]["MYSQL_PASSWORD"];
	var $Database = "phpads";



the "" contains the class "DB_Sql".
This above script doesn't give any problem in php-3.0.9 where as in php-4.0.1pl2 it say's "Parse error: parse error in test.php on line 5" ie It is not accepting the following line
"var $Host = $GLOBALS["CF"]["MYSQL_SERVER"];"

Can any body suggest what could be the problem...

php 4 does only allow constants for class member initialization,
for everything else you have to use the constructor

this is one of the published incompatibilites
