Did you mean to say "unused IN scope"? That would be telling you that
it is not yet defined and that could be a problem if you expect to be

Dear List -

The mysql query fails. I cannot figure out why. It works from the
Ethan - you are simply missing two dollar signs as pointed out. Once
you correct them, if there are any more errors you should then be
the message from mysqli_error.
And as for the advice to dump single quotes, I'd ignore it. The use of
double and single quotes is a very handy feature and makes for very
readable code. Escaping double quotes is such a royal pia and
more trouble deciphering code later on. The sample you provided
is some of the best and most understandable code you've ever showed
Also - Ethan - if you used an editor that was designed for php you
probably would have seen these missing $ signs since a good one would
highlight php syntax and the lack of the $ would have produced a
different color than you expected.
I used Netbeans. All it said is "variable unused is scope", which is
a error that I often find does not mean anything. I am as pressurized
as you are. Any suggestions as to an editor?
Several other posts here have listed their favorites. Notepad ++
seems to be a favorite. I use HTML-kit Tools as my developing
environment. Handles highlighting for php, html and js, as well as
project organization. Also includes an ftp engine to allow me to
modify, upload and then go test my code very quickly. (I don't run php
or apache locally.)
unused IN scope - correct.
There are lots of editors mentioned in this email trail. I thank all
for the suggestions.
Netbeans, Aptana Studio, etc will all highlight code and show the errors
the code would generate in a browse. The problem here was two missing $
I'm probably wrong, but in some contexts; eg, sql query, $ signs are not
used. I tried and added the incorrect $ sign, and Netbeans did not
complain. If anyone knows of an editor that will able to spot this kind
of error, please inform the list.
