Using curl

I need to run something on my domain that
needs file_get_contents and realised that dreamhost recommends using curl instead of file_get_contents.
I went through the documentation for curl on dreamhost wiki and
changed my code like this:
The lines commented ae the old code which i replaced with curl
commands, as you can see below:
The complete file is at http://creditcards.grabline.com/test.html

//begin vivek code
//$str=file_get_contents($file_name);
$ch = curl_init();
$timeout = 20; // set to zero for no timeout
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $file_name);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);
$str = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);

//$ok=file_get_contents(“http://partners.credit-land.com/upload/$applic_id/show_ content.js”);
$ch2 = curl_init();
$timeout = 20; // set to zero for no timeout
curl_setopt ($ch2, CURLOPT_URL,
http://partners.credit-land.com/upload/$applic_id/show_content.js”);
curl_setopt ($ch2, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt ($ch2, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);
$ok = curl_exec($ch2);
curl_close($ch2);
//end vivek code

I am using php 5.0 on this site and don’t mind using php 4 if that is
what is causing this. How can I get this to work on dreamhost
environment (since file_get_contents is disabled)?
Even after changing my code to use curl, I am getting errors. Please help. to see the error, point your browser to http://creditcards.grabline.com/test.html

It looks like only some of your code is being parsed as PHP. Make sure you have opening and closing PHP tags where they are supposed to be.

Hope it is ok to post it here. the code in the prior post was a partial listing. Here is the complete code:
