PHP script dying...why?

I have a function looking like this:

function remove_tree($tid){
    $Q = "DELETE FROM tree WHERE Id = $tid";
    $R = mysql_query($Q);
    $Q2 = "SELECT * FROM tree_member WHERE tree_id = $tid";
    $R2 = mysql_query($Q2);
    while($rec = mysql_fetch_object($R2)){
        echo "deleting indi:".$rec->individual_id;
        del_indi($rec->individual_id, 1);
    }
    echo "OK";
}

As long as I comment out the call to del_indi everything is ok, but when the call is in there the script never reaches the echo "OK".
I have tried with commenting out everything inside the del_indi function which otherwise is working ok when called directly, but still the issue remains, the script will stop executing as long as the call is there.

The del_indi function is now looking like this:

function del_indi($id, $silent) {
    echo "deleting:".$id;
}

I never recive the echo from del_indi.
The MySQL statements is working ok (the correct row in table "tree" is deleted and echo "deleting indi" returns the right id).

PHP Version is 5.1.2

>> The del_indi function is now looking "like" this:

Is the function you listed here 'exactly' what is listed in your code, or is it 'like' the one that is actually in use? I notice that the function has a $silent flag, and I wonder if that is coming into play here.

There used to be code in there, but I stripped it out for testing for now.

I made an even more stripped down version:

      function main(){
            echo "main";
            //test();
            echo "OK";
      }
      function sub(){
            echo "sub";
      }

That will return "mainOK"

However:

      function main(){
            echo "main";
            test();
            echo "OK";
      }
      function sub(){
            echo "sub";
      }

will return only "main"

The functions is inside a class instantiated in engine.php like this:

require_once('classes/engine.class.php');
$engine = new engine();
$engine->main();

Sorry that should be:

      function main(){
            echo "main";
            sub();
            echo "OK";
      }
      function sub(){
            echo "sub";
      }

Result is the same however

ok...I figured it was a scope issue of some sort and is used to having the scope of the class accessible inside the function.
But apparently I need a $this->sub()

Try adding a return; to the sub.

like this

function main(){
 echo "main";
 sub();
 echo "OK";
      }

function sub(){
   echo "sub";
   return;
}

It was simply a scope issue like I explained above.
Since I'm new to this site I'm not sure what to do when I solved the issue myself, so I'll just give you guys the points for your effort.
Thanks
