hi morpheus3g,

I believe T_SL refers to the shift left bitwise operator (which is <<).

Usually this is a result of whitespace.

Do you have a space...

print <<<EOT <--here?

Check that there is no white space around the first or the last line in the heredoc syntax.

I think your syntax is a bit wrong.

This is how I use this type:
<BODY>My name is Geir.</BODY>

print $HELLO;

Also your syntax is right. Check Diablo84 suggestion.
I got the same error and thought the syntax was wrong, but I also had a space at the end.
(Fingers working to fast.)
