Hi,
does anyone know of a good php validator online. I used one called bermi.org and put my code in and gave me an error but i don't know what line the error is occuring. Perhaps someone could help me out.

This is the code
tutors.php

<?php
/**
 *
 * INDEX - Tutor index
 *
 *
 */

require_once("../include/inc_global.php");
require_once(DOC__ROOT . "lang/en/generic.php");
require_once(DOC__ROOT . "lang/en/tutors/tutors.php");

check_user($_user, 'staff');

This is the error it produced

Ooops! There are some errors on the XHTML page

You can also turn on the error message. It does a good job of pinpointing most errors. Place it at the top of your script, just after the first opening PHP tag '<?php'

Do not leave this turned on for a live site. It may give too much information to hackers.

To turn on error messages:

error_reporting(E_ALL);

To turn off error messages:

error_reporting(0);

How do i know how to get the error message as i have put the error_reporting(E_ALL); after the first opening PHP tag like this

MGANDA

ran a page consisting of <?php phpinfo(); ?> and got error messages, ran it again and got "This page is Valid XHTML" ran it 3rd time and got error messages
suggest the w3c validator http://validator.w3.org/ which gives location of errors at least
