get php to validate its self with php check syntax

Did you know that php has a syntax checking function built into it?

Well it does and this is how you can use it to check your php files for errors, rather than just running them and hoping for the best. 

Note: i could not get this one woking on my test code, im not sure if its supported still. 


$error_msg = "";
$file = "index.php";
if(!php_check_syntax($file, &$error_msg)) {
   echo "Errors were found in the file $file: $error_msg";
} else {
   echo "The file $filename contained no syntax errors";
