    user_lambda got a reaction from ArtcoInc in Get rid of some PHP errors using and PHP 7+   
    Well, just found out how to solve 2 php errors I've got using php7+.
    Let's share it:
    If you run (latest official version), it runs fine on php5+ (for exemple with the last release 5.6.40 which is from 2019!).
    But, when you switch to php7 you get (at least) two errors at admin panels :
    1. at "Categories / Products" :
    Warning: sizeof(): Parameter must be an array or an object that implements Countable in C:\EasyPHP-Devserver-17\eds-www\oscommerce2341\catalog\adminUyhGTfDES458\includes\functions\general.php on line 89
    AND categories.php on line 909
    SOLUTION:  find "application_top.php" under admin/includes
    somewhere around line 231, find :
        $current_category_id = $cPath_array[(sizeof($cPath_array)-1)];
      } else {
    just add this line   $cPath_array = [ ] ;
        $current_category_id = 0;
    and you are done.
    The second error I've got is at tools / "Security Checks" panel (that didn't work at all) :
    Warning: Creating default object from empty value in C:\EasyPHP-Devserver-17\eds-www\oscommerce2341\catalog\adminUyhGTfDES458\security_checks.php on line 87
    Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined method stdClass::pass() in C:\EasyPHP-Devserver-17\eds-www\oscommerce2341\catalog\adminUyhGTfDES458\security_checks.php:92 Stack trace: #0 {main} thrown in C:\EasyPHP-Devserver-17\eds-www\oscommerce2341\catalog\adminUyhGTfDES458\security_checks.php on line 92
    Look into the file admin / "security_checks.php". 
    Find and replace : $secCheck = $$module['class'];   by  $secCheck = $GLOBALS[$module['class']];   (somewhere around line 81)
    and you are done.
    I found this out (the lucky way) by examining the related code in "osCommerce2-2.4.2 Joli Beta" which works fine on php7 (but unfortunately some of its fonctions were not implemented, and I'm not a pro coder).
    Hope it can help for someone. (files modified attached if you need it)
