How about:
- WARN("no space between function name and open parenthesis '('\n" . $herecurr);
+ WARN("there should be no space between function name and open parenthesis '('\n" . $herecurr);

The original phrasing can be interpreted like "there is no space between ..." and the correct
interpretation should be "there should be no space between ..."
