Validating IP Addresses with Filters in PHP 5
August 26, 2009 @ 15:52:05

DevShed has posted the seventh part of their "validator" series today. This time they look at validating IP addresses with the filter_var function.

The filter extension comes armed with another handy filter, though, that permits you to check some common things, such as the IP addresses of client machines.
