using output buffering

hi folks,

this piece of code should not display anything:

ob_start();
print_r($users);
ob_end_clean;
well, for me it does - does anyone know why? in fact, it looks like the
ob_xxx() commands are simply ignored except for ob_get_contents() which
works fine.

output_buffering is off in php.ini, but that should not make a
difference if I have understood the manual correctly.

I am using PHP 4.3.8 on a debian box w/ apache 1.3.33-3 running PHP as a
module.

thanks in advance...

Don't forget the parentheses to make it a function call:
ob_end_clean();

Add those and it will work fine.

Yep. You should set error_reporting to E_ALL in your php.ini ...
