Using the Debugger

I'm a newbie and I apologize in advance for the simplicity of my question. I ran across NuShere's PhpED while trying to figure out why I couldn't get my simple php scripts to execute in my Explorer browser. I'm taking a begining PHP course at a local Community College, and we post our scripts to their server, and then run the URL through our browser.

I've had 2 weeks of the class, and I've never done any kind of programming before. I have absolutely no background knowledge of HTML. We're using a book by Larry Ullman titled, "Visual Quickstart Guide PHP". In the second chapter there is discussion about assigning values to variables. The code below is used for demonstration.

I couldn't get it to execute, so I ran the debugger. It showed an arrow and highlighted line 9 (<?php // Script 2.3 - variables.php). I cannot figure out what is wrong with that line of script. Is there a way to get specific information through the debugging operation that describes the error?

Thank you very much!

$state = "PA";
$zip = 16801;

//Print the address.
print "<p>The address is:<br />$street <br />$city $state $zip</p>";

Nothing wrong with script.
By default PhpEd stop on first line of code when run with debugger.
This may be disabled by unchecking "Stop on the first line after run" checkbox in Settings > Run&Debug.

BTW, why you can't just execute script?
Just try to press Ctrl-F9 shortcut in PhpEd, should run seamlessly.
