The Zend Developer Zone has posted a bit of info of special interest to those out there working with PHP and MySQL. Prentice Hall has posted a sample chapter of their "PHP and MySQL By Example" book for public consumption.
Most developers I know of either love or hate Regular Expressions, me personally, I hate them. Yes, they do the job and usually do it elegantly but it's hard to find a more arcane sub-language than regex.
Obviously, the sample chapter talks about regular expressions - specifically what they are, what functions in PHP use them, their use, and enough examples to keep you busy for a long time.
