Problem with reading page

Hi I am having problems running a web page using phplib session management

The problem I have seems to be with the PHPLLB stuff in that when I run a web page all I get is text from part of the .php page - I can see that when I run the page it is not distinguishing between '>' to denote the start of a code block and various locations where '>' is used in the code i.e.
The index.php page
<?
require "prepend.php";
require "../../../pplib/ooforms.inc";

put_headers();

page_open (array("sess" => seems to be seen as a code block - what I actually see on the web page is the remaining code and HTML in the page.

I know everything on the PHP side works as I have other pages that don't use the PHPLLB

Is there something I have not done?

BTW PHP5 -Apache2

Thanks in advance

Paul

Check your php.ini and check if short_open_tag = On

If its turned to off <? will not be recognized as PHP-code only <?php.
Anyway ist better to fix the code so always <?php is used.

No that is OK - this problem has now gone away - I reinstalled PHP  and ran a page with phpino() and all was OK- However I cannot get any of the PHPLIB stuff to work - just get a blank page
I have extended the require to include the complete path of the prepend.php file I require but nothing!

For debuging purposes set the follwoing settings in your php.ini:
error_reporting  =  E_ALL
display_errors = On

So you will get the errors or PHP-warnigs to the screen and you can see whats happen.
