Dynamic vars not the same ?

My Dynamic variables print out, same as strings but aren't the same.
They are not correct when using them as DB.connection vars.

I was using my own routine, that read in string values from a config
file, that had entries like host=localhost etc, etc.
After reading, I used explode with "=" as a separator,... then finally
created some dynamic vars $$key=$val

They are valid, it seems and printout/echo correct normal values:
localhost
myUser
myPass
myDB
They look the same as quoted strings, but when used as database
connection parameters, fail to create a connection.

$link = new mysqli( $host, $user, $pass, $db ); // fails

$link = new mysqli( "localhost", "myUser", "myPass", "myDB" ); // works
and creates a connection

Anyone know why ? Maybe I'm missing something simple.
I'm also exploring good alternatives for config file read-in. THX

It appears that php added a space onto the end of the string, or
perhaps it was a \r\n sequence of characters. Regardless, trim()
took care of the problem.
