From manual page:

Test script:

Expected result:
Running successfully

Actual result:
If you try the above one, you will get this error - 

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in directory/blah/directory on line 3

Pointed at iconv_set_encoding('output_encoding','ISO-8859-1//TRANSLIT//IGNORE');

even if you try iconv_set_encoding('output_encoding','ISO-8859-1');

You will see that you will still get an error.
I am not sure why this is happening, I am running on linux php 5.3

Or is there something wrong with my coding?
