I'm too <beep>ing tired to figure this out. I had memory leaks when may maximum memory limit was set at 256MB! I solved that but I have a new error that Google just doesn't bother to answer: syntax errors.

I'm trying to make a one-man script where you enter the number of fields, then that quantity pops up, then you arrange them into a list.

I input 5 in the number of fields box, then go to the next page and fill this in:

Hi
Hello
Hey (favourite)
Welcome

I expect:

1. Hi
2. Hello
3. Hey
4. Welcome

But I get this when successful:

1.
2.
3.
4.

In an attempt to fix it, I ended up screwing up the variables irreversibly. Are there any changes I could make to have the script perform the intended objective? This is super annoying and just plain pressuring.
