need more help

hi again, thanks to those that have been helping me along the way with my script. i'm still coming up with problems heh.

ok here are the pages again:

the list page http://only.host.sk/sample_pk_list.html

to post to the list http://only.host.sk/sample_post_pk.html

the code http://only.host.sk/pklist_sk.txt

so far i been tinkering with it, and I think the problem with the slashes is all gone ( http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=php&qid=20278996 )

though, i can't test it anymore because i'm getting an error now

the problem with the spaces in the list page code is still there. after each post, the lines of code get more and more spaces when you view the html source of the list page.

also, i don't understand what the period . does in the code? how come $CRLF is used instead of putting /n at the end? still trying to understand this php stuff. (original cgi script http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qManageQuestion.jsp?ta=php&qid=20275170 )

the error is:
Parse error: parse error in /mnt/host-users/only/cgi-bin/pklist_sk.php on line 32

also, you can post and test the pages out
Your error is on this line:

fwrite($fp,"<b>Name:</b> " . stripslashes($pkname) . stripslashes($pkacct) "<BR>" . $CRLF);

You need to add the dot before the break tag string:

stripslashes($pkacct) . "<BR>"

The dot concatinates the returned value of the stripslashes to the string value that follows and visa versa.  It is the concatinate operater.

The program you are using was created so it would be easy to edit, you can add the \n to the string if you wanted to:

stripslashes($pkacct) "<BR>\n");

You also have the same error on this line:

 stripslashes($myacct)"</b></font> <BR>" . $CRLF);

should be:

stripslashes($myacct) . "</b></font> <BR>" . $CRLF);

ah okay.

i wanted the paranthesis around accts so i did this:
stripslashes($pkname) . " " . "(" . stripslashes($pkacct) . ")" . "<BR>" . $CRLF);

that alright coding?

i still have that space problem

say the code on the list page was this:

after using the form, it'll change to this:



after a while, you end up having huge gaps in the code.
see source of http://only.host.sk/sample_pk_list.html
i need to use wordpad now to even view source because of all that extra space.
-> stripslashes($pkname) . " " . "(" . stripslashes($pkacct) . ")" . "<BR>" . $CRLF);

The above is fine.

The problem with the extra spaces, it's in this line:

fwrite($fp,stripslashes($line) . $CRLF);

Every time it writes the html over again it's adding a new line for each line.  Remove thte .$CRLF
