Default urlencode error page 37

When browsing the movie1.php file, Iget the following...

Warning: urlencode() expects parameter 1 to be strictly a binary string, Unicode string given in C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\ch2\movie1.php on line 23

Here is the code, downloaded right from this site...

$_SESSION['username'] = $_POST['user'];
$_SESSION['userpass'] = $_POST['pass'];
$_SESSION['authuser'] = 0;
//Check username and password information
if (($_SESSION['username'] == 'Joe') and
($_SESSION['userpass'] == '12345')) {
$_SESSION['authuser'] = 1;
} else {
echo 'Sorry, but you don\'t have permission to view this page!';
<title>Find my Favorite Movie!</title>
<?php include 'header.php'; ?>
$myfavmovie = urlencode('Life of Brian');
echo "<a href=\"moviesite.php?favmovie=$myfavmovie\">";
echo "Click here to see information about my favorite movie!";
echo "</a>";
<br />
Or choose how many movies you would like to see:
<form method="post" action="moviesite.php">
<p>Enter number of movies (up to 10):
<input type="text" name="num" maxlength="2" size="2"/>
Check to sort them alphabetically:
<input type="checkbox" name="sorted" />
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit"/>

Any ideas why I'm getting this error?

I think you should typecast the string to binary like this: $myfavmovie = urlencode((binary) 'Life of Brian');
This is a php6 change.
