Default table2.php in chapter 4 - blank page ??

I figured I should put this in a new thread then someone may notice it ;)

table2.php in chapter 2 will simple not work for me, I just get a blank page.. all the other exercises up till this one have worked with no problem...

I've also tried the downloaded one, which does the same thing...

Any ideas anyone??

I've entered it as follows:

Code:
<?php

$link = mysql_connect("localhost", "bp5am", "bp5ampass")
    or die(mysql_error());

mysql_select_db("moviesite");
    or die(mysql_error());

$query= "SELECT movie_name, movie_director, movie_leadactor ".
    "FROM movie";

$result = mysql_query($query, $link)
    or die(mysql_error());
$num_movies = mysql_num_rows($result);

$movie_header=<<<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>Movie Director</th>
        <th>Movie Lead Actor</th>
    </tr>
EOD;

$movie_details = '';
while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
    $movie_name = $row['movie_name'];
    $movie_director = $row['movie_director'];
    $movie_leadactor = $row['movie_leadactor'];

    $movie_details .=<<<EOD
    <tr>
        <td>$movie_name</td>
        <td>$movie_director</td>
        <td>$movie_leadactor</td>
    </tr>
EOD;
}

$movie_details .=<<<EOD
    <tr>
        <td>&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td>Total: $num_movies Movies</td>
    </tr>
EOD;

$movie_footer ="</table>";

$movie = <<<MOVIE
    $movie_header
    $movie_details
    $movie_footer
MOVIE;

echo "There are $num_movies movies in our database";
echo $movie;

Ok, I have just figured it out.. :D

Code:
mysql_select_db("moviesite");
    or die(mysql_error());
Notice the semi-colon after mysql_select_db("moviesite")
This is what happens when you don't have a compiler which complains about stupid mistakes like this

Strange thing is the downloaded version does not have this error, and yet it's still giving me a blank page..
