I am working with two seperate files which contain similar code - One throws a parse error for an identical line, the other does not. I do not understand why this would be.

The error on the file that will not run is: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '2' (T_LNUMBER)

Here is a code snippet that works without the parse error:

if (($indx % 2) == 1) {$rowClass = $trOdd; } else { $rowClass = $trEven; } echo '<tr '.$rowClass.'>';

Here is a code snippet that does not work and has the parse error:

if (($indx % 2) == 1) {$rowClass = $trOdd; } else { $rowClass = $trEven; } echo '<tr '.$rowClass.'>';

Identical.

This error centers around the use of the 2, hence the (T_LNUMBER).

I see no difference in either code - I am simply doing ($indx % 2) == 1), the 2 being the problem for some reason.

Thank you in advance for any help!

Hi,

The complete error message is: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '2' (T_LNUMBER) in C:\xampp\htdocs\demo\nest_Demo_thrasher.php on line 115

This has been solved.

It seems like it was an issue with my code editor (BlueFish) or something.

When I removed the % in ($indx % 2) == 1), saved the file, and ran it I received the same error as noted in my original post.

I then re-added % to ($indx 2) == 1), saved it, ran it and it worked.

Not sure what happened there.
