Baffling Problems With Class


Forgive me if I ask a dumb question, I'm new to classes and object programming with PHP,
and cannot figure out what the problem is with this class. Maybe I have overlooked
something but just can't see it. The error message usually means a typo or something
that I missed.

I get this error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in crypt_class.php on line 6

I cannot figure it out. I took this class from the book Essential PHP Security, and
hand-coded it line for line. But it is baffling why it errors out. I did modify
the constructor to have the same name as the class, in the book they use __construct
instead of the class name, but it didn't seem to matter or didn't appear to be the

I have tried to use this on two different machines, same error on each machine.
One machine has 4.3.11 the other 4.4.1, but both produce the same error.

Thanks in advance!!

( I can't post my email my employer will fire me )

private $algorithm ;
private $mode ;


var $algorithm ;
var $mode ;

I'm a C++ novice and need help figuring out some odd behavior I've encountered. Here's the situation: I create a class and have its constructor store a random number in a private "number" variable. The class also has a "getNumber()" function that returns its stored number. A function in the program creates five objects of this class and five pointers to these objects, the latter of which are stored in a global array. When "getNumber()"...
