Description: ------------ Pretty simple one this. Just need to rename the try() function in the Queue/Body.php file. Last function (line 330). This function name conflicts with the next error handling features of php5.

Last time I checked, "try" was not a reserved word. Did you encounter any problem with the class? Since it's a class method and not a global function, it shouldn't cause conflicts, but I admit I haven't tried yet. Can you provide some feedback? TIA, -- Lorenzo Alberton

I could only find a list of reserved words for php4. However, I can assure you that the following words are now reserved for php5: try, catch, throw, exception, public, private, protected, abstract, interface and final. Example: class TryTest { private $value; public function __construct($someValue) { $this->try($someValue); } private function try($value) { $this->value = $value; } } $tt = new TryTest('Test'); Causes the following error: Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_TRY, expecting T_STRING
