    PHP to call files and show content of file

    Ive been playing around with this all day, I think my path is wrong, I keep getting [Parse error: parse error, unexpected ';' in /class/ct386b/##/www/cgi-bin/french5.php on line 73]
    Here are how my files are set up and I am linking to my college unix system thru my signon ~ct386##
    <secret> inside this is<exercise5>and in that is <content> this folder contains lesson5.txt and vocabulary.txt files. Then under my <cgi-bin> folder if have french5.php. The instructions are pretty simple, I understand what it wants me todo, just cant make it do it.(story of my life)
    INSTRUCTIONS§ 1.Declare a variable named strLessonDescription that contains the contents of the lesson5.txt file. In the declaration, if the opening of the file fails, include the message "Error - lesson5.txt cannot be opened" (without quotes)
    2.within the lessonDescription ID, create a PHP block of code that outputs the contents of the strLessonDescription variable.
    Here is my PHP CODE
    PHP Code:
    <?php

    $StrLessDescription 
    = ("http://nova.umuc.edu/~ct386b##/secret/exercise5/content/lesson5.txt");
    $newfile = @fopen($StrLessDescription"r") or exit ('Error - lesson5.txt cannot be opened');
    $file_contents = @fgetcsv($newfilefilesize($StrLessDescription)) or exit ('Could not read file 

    contents'
    );
    while (
    $i=0$i sizeof($file_contents); $i++);
    {
        echo 
    $file_contents[$i];
        echo 
    "<br/>";
    }
                        
    fclose($newfile);
    ?>
    </p>

    Remove the semicolon shown in red:


    while ($i=0; $i < sizeof($file_contents); $i++);
    {
    echo $file_contents[$i];
    echo "<br/>";
    }

    First, unsuppress those errors. Next, which line is line 73?
