Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
With 1.5+ million web sites running PHP scripts, PHP expertise isn't just "nice to have": it's rapidly approaching "must have" status. With SAMS Teach Yourself PHP4 in 24 Hours, you'll pick up those skills in a hurry.

Matt Zandstra covers the simple stuff quickly and efficiently: variables, data types, flow control, functions, arrays, and objects. That leaves plenty of pages for real-world applications. You'll learn how to work with forms, files, and directories; use PHP's DBM functions for working with simple UNIX databases; then learn the fundamentals of working with PHP's powerful MySQL relational database support.

Zandstra covers using PHP to create and output images on the fly; working with dates and text strings; setting cookies and saving state with session functions; and working with the server environment (the examples are based on Linux running Apache). There's a chapter on basic PHP debugging, including identifying PHP configurations and variables, writing error messages, and spotting common errors. Finally, Zandstra brings it all together with a two-chapter, step-by-step walkthrough of a real-world PHP application: a community event calendar.
