I have problems to make IF OR statement properly, in this case it does not matter if I use || or "OR".
I have now:
if($email == '' || (!filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)))
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function \xa0() in
if($email == '' || !filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL))
PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '!' in
This error message
Call to undefined function \xa0() in looks a lot like encoding types are the source of your problem. The
\xA0 character is a bugger:
\xa0 is actually non-breaking space in Latin1 (ISO 8859-1), also chr(160). You should replace it with a space. When .encode('utf-8'), it will encode the unicode to utf-8, that means every unicode could be represented by 1 to 4 bytes.Jun 12, 2012
The problem is you can't see it either because it's a special "whitespace" that was most probably inserted during a Crtl+C / Crtl+V from some strange IDE or website.
This should remove them all from your file and replace them with
file_put_contents('your-script-cleaned.php', str_replace('\\x0a', ' ', file_get_contents('your-script-original.php')))
An IDE search & replace could do the trick just as well.
