I don't think you can get it to work below PHP 5.2.  Even PHP 5.3 is several years old and obsolete today; current versions are 5.4.34, 5.5.18 and 5.6.2.  The alternative question you may want to ask is "why is my code unusable with modern versions of PHP?"

Thanks Ray paseur, after looking further into it, discovered that I really shouldn't be working with code that works on much earlier versions.  Learn a lot here..and thanks for your feedback
