PHP and MySQL Phrasebook (Developer's Library)by Christian Wenz
Synopses & Reviews
This is the quick, practical, code-rich reference for every experienced web developer who wants to start using the latest versions of PHP 5.x and MySQL 5.x right now. Designed for developers who are already comfortable with older versions of PHP and/or MySQL, it offers more than 100 instantly usable code snippets: developers can just look up the technique they're interested in, and find solutions they can apply immediately. Integrating our previously separate PHP Phrasebook and MySQL Phrasebook into one convenient volume, this hands-on guide gets straight to the essence of what's important in PHP 5.4 and MySQL 5.5, skipping the beginner-level tutorials many web developers no longer need. This book's extensive new examples include namespaces, closures, mysqlnd, PHP security, Ajax/JSON, and international support. Readers will also find previews of anticipated features in forthcoming releases. Coverage includes: working with strings and arrays; date/time; objects and classes; interacting with web forms; cookies and sessions; using files on the server file system; accessing MySQL databases; using XML; and communicating with other systems via HTTP, FTP, SOAP, WSDL, and much more.
PHP and MySQL Phrasebook gives you the code you need to complete your web programming projects quickly and effectively in PHP, the leading scripting language for creating dynamic web pages.
Concise and Accessible
Easy to carry and easy to use–lets you ditch all those bulky books for one portable pocket guide
