With the release of PHP 5 web developers need a guide to developing with PHP 5 to both learn its complex new features and more fully implement the long-standing features on which PHP's success is built.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Want an immense library of solid, well-written PHP 5 code and application solutions? Want explanations that are clear enough you can really adapt the code to your own needs? Then you want PHP in Practice.

Section I offers scores of code solutions with broad applicability. For example, string techniques (pattern matching, eliminating white space, parsing CSV files) and numeric techniques (interest rate calculations, metric/English conversion). You’ll find chapters on manipulating times and dates; variables; arrays; functions; classes and objects; and files and directories.

Next, the authors address every major category of web application: page creation, navigation, form handling, validation, sessions, user tracking, databases, email, RSS, image generation, encryption, and more. This isn’t trivial stuff, either. Want to create a multi-layer drop-down menu? Buffer page output for server optimization? Communicate with LDAP servers? Perform database-based user authentication? Look it up, tweak it, and do it. Bill Camarda, from the August 2006 Read Only
