Strange PHP error

I have this:srand(time()); //seeding the random generator //generate alt to the capcha $digits[] = array(rand()%9,rand()%9); $operator = rand()%3; //0 = addition //1 = subtraction //2 = mutiplication $answer = 1; switch($operator) { case 0: $answer = digits[0] + digits[1]; /where error is showing $operator = '+'; //abuse of softcasting I know. break; //wonders if it will still work with me changing the switch variable in the switch struct? case 1: $answer = digits[0]  digits[1]; $operator = ''; break; case 2: $answer = digits[0] * digits[1]; $operator = '*'; break; default: die("Someones been fucking with my scripts"); }
And it's telling me, Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '['
Can someone help me with it? I don't see how that's an error!

shit

Please, some mod, delete this thread and save me the horror!

Fixed that, now it's telling me:
Fatal error: Unsupported operand types@the second case, first statement.
edit: line: $answer = $digits[0]  $digits[1];
second edit: it's on the first case now.

sorry i'm not psychic.
But here.
$digits = array(rand(0,10),rand(0,10));
$operators = array('','','+');
$operator = $operators[rand(0,count($operators)1)];
switch ($operator) {
case '+':
$answer = $digits[0] + $digits[1];
break;
case '':
$answer = $digits[0]  $digits[1];
break;
case '':
$answer = $digits[0] * $digits[1];
break;
}
print $digits[0]." $operator ".$digits[1]." = ";
print $answer;
 edit 
spotted it
you wrote
$digits[] = array(rand(),rand())
which means you put a array in a array, because you can implicitly add items to a array by assigning something to $my_variable[]

God damnit! The second errors I was complaining about is occurring in an import! I should really get some sleep...

If this isn't your first hour/day of php, yes you probably should,

No, but it's the first phping I've done in maybe 6 months or so.
I'm going to bed, no more coding for me tonight.

Once it took me over 15 mintues to see the error in:
for(i=0; i<something; i++) { /PHP/
It was more than halfway into a 1MBofPHPcode project, and possibly around my 2000th line for the day. I actually ended up calling a colleague when I realized I wouldn't be able to find the error on my own.

Sorry, can't do that, unless you offer me a pallet of cheap Chinese Nike shoes.

You forgot the corpse of the guy who sold them to you. Unless you meant the other type of shoes.
