CURL returns cryptic message

OK here is the problem:

I have created a simple test method to get an arbitrary external page using cURL. The code "seems" to work in that it does not return an error as such, just a cryptic message "Some error occured". That is absolutely no help.

Here is the code:


// class to get text of external page

class GetHtml

    public function getPage() 
        curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
        if (curl_exec($ch) === false) 
            return "Error: " + curl_error($ch) + "<br />\n";

            return curl_multi_getcontent($ch);


//Create new instance of jAPIBaseClass with names 
//of all classes that you want to use them separeted with comma...

new jAPIBaseClass('GetHtml');

Does anyone have an idea what is happening? Why the cryptic message from cURL?

Note: the jAPI interface just lets me reference the function in javascript.
It works fine.

=== UPDATE 15 Sept 2011 =====
Although it is not my default browser and I only use it for compatibility checking, Google Chrome has a debugging console that is useful. Running this script in the debug console supplies a result that says the script is described as javascript but is returned as html. This info is not provided by cURL or the FireFox error console. Any ideas anyone.

the HTML calling it is <script type="text/javascript">GetHTTP.getPage();</script?>

Changing the text type to HTML does not change the error.
