100 power solutions to real-world problems

This practical guide gives you 100 ready-to-run PHP functions for solving most of the main problems you encounter when building a dynamic website with PHP. Every plug-in in the book offers a complete and working solution for a result you can achieve right away, using ready-made code you simply drop into your own program. And theres little or no learning curve, because each one is self-contained and thoroughly documented.

Plug-in PHP is packed with programming tips and suggestions for further adapting the functions to your own needs, and even breaks down all the variables, arrays and functions used by each into at-a-glance tables, accompanied by a screen grab of every function in action. This makes the book extremely easy to use, even for complete beginners to PHP programming.

A plug-in for every need

No matter what cookbook-style solutions youre looking for, youll find the perfect functions in this book, and you can have them up and running in just a couple of minutes. For example, heres the complete list of plug-ins which, while comprehensive, simply doesn't do justice to the depth and breadth of help, information, and practical code provided in this book:
