PHP Cookbook

PHP Cookbook Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

PHP is a simple yet powerful open source scripting language that has become a big player in web development. Over a million web sites, from large corporate sites to small personal sites, are using PHP to serve dynamic web content. PHP's broad feature set, approachable syntax, and support for different operating systems and web servers make it an ideal language for rapid web development.

The PHP Cookbook is a collection of problems, solutions, and practical examples for PHP programmers. The book contains a unique and extensive collection of best practices for everyday PHP programming dilemmas. For every problem addressed in the book, there's a worked-out solution or "recipe" — short, focused pieces of code that you can insert directly into your applications. But this book offers more than cut-and-paste code. You also get explanations of how and why the code works, so you can learn to adapt the problem-solving techniques to similar situations.

The recipes in the PHP Cookbook range from simple tasks, such as sending a database query and fetching URLs, to entire programs that demonstrate complex tasks, such as printing HTML tables and generating bar charts.

Synopsis:

Programmers and Web designers will learn how to build dynamic web applications that work on any web browser and on any web server that supports CGI scripts - interactive programs that aren't tied to particular systems.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. xvii-xix) and index.

  • Working with basic data types, including strings, numbers, dates and times, and arrays
  • PHP building blocks, such as variables, functions, classes, and objects
  • Web programming, including forms, database access, and XML
  • Useful features like regular expressions, encryption and security, graphics, internationalization and localization, and Internet services
  • Working with files and directories
  • Command-line PHP and PHP-GTK
  • PEAR, the PHP Extension and Application Repository
This book contains an impressive collection of useful code for PHP programmers, from novices to advanced practitioners. Instead of poking around mailing lists, online documentation, and other sources, you can rely on the PHP Cookbook to provide quick solutions to common problems, so you can spend your time on those out-of-the-ordinary problems specific to your application.
