Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
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

    All of the pages seem to be there, but the pages should be read on a larger screen than a Nook.
