you are unknowingly pasting hidden characters which cause this parse error – Lucky Soni Mar 6 '14 at 10:06 , Stack Overflow for Teams Where developers & technologists share private knowledge with coworkers , Are those row numbers present? May be some unicode "invisible" characters (in odd editor) ? – Alma Do Mar 6 '14 at 10:07 ,I'm currently using Sublime Text (but have had the same types of mistaken parse errors in Notepad++ and the old Homesite editor as well), running MAMP on OS X, but it has happened on my Windows desktop machine as well.

To fix it in Sublime Text you need to edit Preferences/Key bindings - User and add the line:

   "keys": ["alt+space"],
   "command": "insert_snippet",
   "args": {
      "contents": " "
load more v

I have had this problem for years, but not as frequently as today. This prompted me to ask this question once and for all.,Instead of lengthy math formulas or logic chains, use temporary variables to simplify the code. (More readable = fewer errors.),Invisible stray Unicode characters: In some cases, you need to use a hexeditor or different editor/viewer on your source. Some problems cannot be found just from looking at your code.,Which is occasionally an issue for MacOS users (even on OS  X for misconfigured editors).

Today, I have meticulously typed down every character exactly as the line failing and then removing the old one, just to have the script working. For example:

1 foreach($_POST['data_positions'] AS $k => $v) {

threw a parse error on line 1. I bumped the code down to row 2 and wrote the exact same line 1 again (I check several times that every character is the same), then removing line 2, and it works. Another example:

if (is_numeric($k)) {
load more v

Ah I see ur a man of culture
load more v
