I am learning PHP and using examples from the book which is on version PHP_4.0.0 and on the server we have version PHP 5.2.6 installed.
Examples has 2 files:

<TITLE>Calculation Form</TITLE>

<FORM METHOD="post" ACTION="calculate.php">

<P>Value 1: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="val1" SIZE=10></p>

<P>Value 2: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="val2" SIZE=10></p>

<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="calc" VALUE="add"> add<br>
<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="calc" VALUE="subtract"> subtract<br>
<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="calc" VALUE="multiply"> multiply<br>
<INPUT TYPE="radio" NAME="calc" VALUE="divide"> divide</p>

<P><INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="submit" VALUE="Calculate"></p>




if (($val1 == "") || ($val2 == "") || ($calc =="")) {

if ($calc == "add") {
      $result = $val1 + $val2;
} else if ($calc == "subtract") {
      $result = $val1 - $val2;
} else if ($calc == "multiply") {
      $result = $val1 * $val2;
} else if ($calc == "divide") {
      $result = $val1 / $val2;


<TITLE>Calculation Result</TITLE>

<P>The result of the calculation is: <? echo "$result"; ?></p>


It is not echoing the result when click on Caclcuate button. It only displays the message The result of the calculation is:         and no result.....

Can anyone advice what is it something to do with the version.......
