PHP fucntions with parameters

Hi:

I got some problems with PHP functions

I'd like to declare a PHP function, using Zend Studio 6

function testfunc ()

{

}


function testfunc ($aVar)
{

}

The first function, testfunc(), without parameter is OK
The 2nd function, testfunc($aVar), has syntax error.

I could not figure out why because it seems trivial to have such parameter.

Maybe I made some error.

If you've some idea, please help.

Thanks

Call it testfunc2, you can't overload functions in PHP.


function testfunc ()
 
{
 
}
 
 
function testfunc2($aVar)
{
 
}

Hi cmorbach:

Thanks for the reply.

Actually, I didn't overload the function.

I only have 1 function in the php file: testfunc.

However, if this function does not have any parameter. it's OK.
If I added a parameter into it, it has syntax error.

Is it Zend Studio thats reporting it? or have you tried calling in in a browser?

I have not used Zend Studio for a while ( I prefere Eclipse ).
