The parse error is saying that you have an unexpected $ at line 16. So...line 16 of table1.php is supposed to be echo $movie. Well, you either did not properly initiate the variable earlier in the code or you perhaps have more than one $ or a different un-initiated variable on this line. We need to see the code that [u]YOU</u> are using before we can offer any more advice. Please copy/paste it here.

On another note, I am a little confused, because the title of your post references pg132. However, the script table1.php is actually back on pg111-112. So...am I missing something or was it simply a type on your part? Anyway, I'm just trying to get to the root of your problem.

ok, I should have said that I am using the spanish edition of the book in witch the code appears at page 132. The code is:

<?php
     $movie=<<<EOD
     <h2><center>Movie Review Database</center></h2>
     <table width='70%' border='1' cellpadding='2'
       cellspacing='2' align='center'>
          <tr>
               <th>Movie Title</th>
               <th>Year of Release</th>
               <th>Movie Director</th>
               <th>Movie Lead Actor</th>
               <th>Movie Type</th>
          </tr>
     </table>
EOD;

     echo $movie;
?>

just as I copied from the site.
I may have to say also that I am working on a mac OSX system.

Thank you for tour help.

Well I believe that the problem is in working with "=<<<", I have even tried with the code

<?php
$movie=<<<EOD
     <h2><center>Movie Review Database</center></h2>
EOD;

     echo $movie;
?>

and still have the same answer with diferent error line number

Parse error: parse error, unexpected $ in /Library/Apache2/htdocs/pphp/capt4/table1_pr0.php on line 6

Probably it is the php version I am using (PHP Version 4.3.9), I really don't know

could I skip this? or do it in any other way?

I'm not sure why they do it this way, but you can replace the section you posted with the following for the same thing:

Code:
$movie = "
     <h2><center>Movie Review Database</center></h2>
     <table  width='70%' border='1' cellpadding='2'
       cellspacing='2' align='center'>
          <tr>
               <th>Movie Title</th>
               <th>Year of Release</th>
               <th>Movie Director</th>
               <th>Movie Lead Actor</th>
               <th>Movie Type</th>
          </tr>
     </table>
";
echo $movie;
hth,
