    Default parse error

    Somebody please help out; I'm at my wits end with this one.

    I'm getting a parse error message from my server:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in [pathtofile] on line 137

    This is line 137:
    Code:
    $pic_file = "zz_gallery/gallery_" . $max_pictures . ".php";

    These are lines 134 - 160:
    Code:
    <?php
    
    $pic_file = "zz_gallery/gallery_" . $max_pictures . ".php";
    
    if (file_exists($pic_file)) {
    
         $tmp = file_get_contents($pic_file);
         foreach (range(0, $max_pictures-1) as $key) {
              $uri = $pic = $picture_set[$key];
              if (!$pic) {
                   $thumb = "<img src='/models/thumb.php5?uri=blank' height='125' width='100' border='0'/>";
              } else {
                   $thumb = "<a href='$pic'><img src='/models/thumb.php5?uri=$pic' height='125' width='100' border='0'/></a>";
              }
              $tmp = str_replace("[$key]", $thumb, $tmp);
         }
         echo $tmp;
    
    } else {
    
         echo "<table cellspacing='15' cellpadding='0' border='0'>\n\t<tr>\n";
         foreach ($picture_set as $pic) {
              echo("\t\t<td><a href='$pic'><img src='/models/thumb.php5?uri=$pic' height='125' width='100' border='0'/></a></td>\n");
         }
    }
    
    ?>
    I just can't figure out what the problem is!!!

    Weird. I don't see it either. Could there be a larger problem, like an open loop?

    it looks like you have the correct syntax, but if you are using PHP5 you could also do
    PHP Code:
    $pic_file "zz_gallery/gallery_{$max_pictures}.php"
    you should get the same error, though, but if you wanna try you can go for it.

    as djr said, it could be an open loop, or possibly even an extra open bracket somewhere... the error occured on 137, and thus aborted, so really it would be better if we were to see lines 0-136 to let you know what's causing the error

    You were right; the issue was an open string on line 96. I wouldn't have thought to look up that far, lol. Thanks.

    if you are using PHP5 you could also do
    Not just PHP5; that also works on at least PHP4.
