stream_socket_c lient doesn't work???

I'm using PHP 5.0 on Windows XP, and I'm trying to use
stream_socket_c lient to attach to an SSL socket server. Something like

$host = "localhost" ;
$port = 9999;

$context = stream_context_ create();
stream_context_ set_option($con text, 'ssl', 'local_cert', 'mycert.pem');
stream_context_ set_option($con text, 'ssl', 'passphrase', 'secret');

$where = "ssl://$host:$port";

$s = stream_socket_c lient($where, $errno, $errstr, 30, 0, $context);


This code runs. $s reports to be a stream resource, nothing is placed
in $errno or $errstr.

But it doesn't make a connection to the server. I know for certain
because I have a breakpoint in the server at "accept" (it's in C++)
that doesn't get hit.

Now, I've been single-stepping thru PHP's source code to see what I
might be missing. What I haven't stepped into yet is anything that
actually connects a socket to a server. It looks rather like that
should happen in php_openssl_ssl _socket_factory (a function in
xp_ssl.c) but it's not there.

Does stream_socket_c lient truly not work? I need to connect to an SSL
server and send a local certificate, which fsockopen (apparently)
doesn't allow.

Nobody helps. I find the answer myself. Typical.

You have to supply the value STREAM_CLIENT_C ONNECT for the 'flags'
parameter of the call to stream_client_s ocket (I had zero because the
two flags noted didn't apply to me). I found that out while stepping
thru the source code of transports.c.

Apparently stream_socket_c lient isn't ready for prime time yet; in the
documentation it's still labelled EXPERIMENTAL, and it doesn't explain
the STREAM_CLIENT_C ONNECT requirement.

My JavaScript Form Validation doesn't work at all in Netscape, but it works fine in IE. I made some of the suggested changes which enabled it to work in IE. I couldn't make all the changes because then it didn't work in IE. How can I enable this javascipt form validation to work in Netscape? When I use netscape, none of the alert boxes appear. It submits the form without validating anything.

It doesn't seem possible. But would the following also seem a violation of the general notions behind css? You have a DIV, say asociated with class, 'topdiv'. Inside of that you have an anchor (and whatever it contains), associated with class, 'a'. Somewhere else in, 'topdiv', there is a span or element (containing whatever), associated with class, 'b'.

Hello, In an ASPX page I have a "Quit" button which make a simple redirect in code-behind. This button doesn't work no more since (I think) I moved from the framework 1.0 to 1.1 and it doesn't work only on IE! My ASPX page works in FireFox. If the button doesn't work it's because of validators (and it worked with the same code in v1.0).
