Overview

This book will cover all the most important tasks related to dealing with text/strings in PHP. The core of the book will look at PHP's built in string functions and the two flavours of Regular Expressions that PHP supports. String handling functions and Regular expressions basically solve many of the problems but in a very different way. This book won't just look at how to use them but when and where each is appropriate and what affect that choice has on performance.

What this book covers:

  • Regular expressions
  • String functions in PHP (obviously!)
  • How PHP internally handles strings
  • Performance of the various string handling options in PHP
  • Character sets (ASCII, Unicode, etc.)
  • String Searches

    This book is aimed at PHP developers who have to deal with and manipulate strings. PHP is a web development language pure and simple, a large portion of Web programming requires strings to be handled and generated, so this skill is extremely important for PHP programmers. Most general PHP books have some coverage of string handling, but none approach it in nearly as much depth, or have the space to be able to approach the topic in the same Handbook "best practice, task-focused" way.
