Making the Web Blog:
Becoming PHP 6 Compatible
December 05, 2007 @ 11:13:00

On the Making the Web blog, there's this post that talks about looking forward with your code and making it ready for when PHP6 comes around.

If you want to make use of PHP 6 when it comes, you're going to have to write your new scripts so they are compatible, and possibly change some of your existing scripts. To start making your scripts PHP 6 compatible, I've compiled a list of tips to follow when scripting.

There's only five things in his list (like "stop using magic_quotes" and "don't register long arrays") but the comments provide many more additional gotchas to look out for and new features that will be included.

KillerPHP Blog:
PHP Video Processing Forms with PHP - part 2
August 29, 2006 @ 07:23:02

The KillerPHP Blog is back today with another video, this time it's part two of a very useful topic, expecially for those just learning PHP - processing forms with PHP from Stefan Mischook.

Having covered the basics of forms in the first video, I now jump into the actual PHP code and introduce (for the first time) a built-in PHP construct called 'Super Globals'.

We learn that Super Globals are associative arrays (that they hold lots of useful information,) that are automatically created by the PHP engine.

You can check out the video here.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
A pro-PHP Rant
February 22, 2006 @ 06:59:12

In a follow-up to his brief opinion on the Tim Bray comments about PHP, Harry Fuecks has poested this longer rant on the SitePoint PHP blog today.

He looks at eight different topics:

  • It's the execution model
  • Excellent database support
  • PHP Arrays
  • The SPL Extension
  • PHP 5(.1) XML Support
  • The stuff that says it works...works
  • Unicode and ICU
  • Stuck in Little boxes

For each of them he explains them briefly, dispelling any rumors that might have come up from those not as experienced with the PHP language.

Update: if you'd like to help promote it, it's been digged.

PHPit.net:
Back to basics - PHP & Arrays
January 11, 2006 @ 06:55:49

PHPit.net goes "back to the basics" today with this new post - a look at the basics of how PHP handles arrays and how to use them effectively.

Lately the internet has been on a real fast track, and there have been many new developments, like Ajax, Web 2.0, Tags, and other interesting (and often hyped up) things. But this tutorial won't go there at all, and goes back to the beginning with the basics: using arrays in PHP.

If you're a seasoned PHP developer, who knows arrays like the back of his hand, this might be an article you'd want to skip. But if you're still unsure how arrays work, or if you're just curious about a few things, read on and learn more about arrays in PHP.

This is a very basic article, and doesn't give much in the way of any "array tricks" either. Array functions aren't even covered (mostly) - just how to create and update arrays in your code. But for a beginner, that's all you need...

November 15, 2005 @ 05:46:27

On the Utah PHP Users Group site today, there's information about their November meeting posted, as well as the topic of the evening - "The Key to Harnessing the Value of Arrays".

For our November meeting, Mac Newbold will present on arrays. A fun-filled evening of exciting adventures with everyone's favorite PHP data type. We'll cover both lists and associative arrays, the differences between them, and their respective operators and functions. We'll demonstrate how to use them in various loop constructs, and a million and one ways to sort your arrays.

We'll show everyone how to use arrays in some of the other standard PHP functions, like the string functions. And then we'll cover how to use arrays to make advanced data structures, like multi-dimentional arrays, lists of lists, and "structs" or mock objects. The evening will be an unforgettable experience for PHPers of all ages and skill levels! Discount tickets on sale now, or remaining tickets will be available at regular price at the door.

The metting will be happening on Thursday (Nov. 17th) starting at 7pm in Bluffdale, Utah (at the Linux Networx offices). For more information and ot RSVP, head over here and enter your info...
