Learning Loops
December 15, 2011 @ 10:15:00

PHPmaster.com has a new introductory tutorial for those just starting out with PHP (or with programming really) talking about using looping structures for sets of data - for, while/do-while and foreach.

A significant advantage of computers is that they can perform repetitive tasks easily and efficiently. Instead of writing repetitive code you can write a set of statements that processes some data and then have the computer execute them repeatedly by using a construct known as a loop. Loops come in several different flavors in PHP: for, while, do-while, and foreach. I'll introduce you to each of them and show you how they can making repetitive tasks straightforward and easy to maintain.

The tutorial explains a use case for each of the loop types and includes a bit of sample code showing how to put it into practice. It also shares two special keywords that can be used to bypass or break out of your current loop - break and continue.

Loops & Decisions in PHP - The ABC's of PHP Part 8
May 07, 2009 @ 10:26:34

PHPBuilder.com has posted the eighth part of their introductory "ABCs of PHP" series today. This time the focus is on looping and decision functionality (like if/while/for/etc).

n any given computer language (PHP is no exception) there has to be a way to allow the running code to decide between doing 2 different things. If there wasn't then software would not be able to adapt based on operating conditions, or it wouldn't be able to decide between two different users.

They look at using: if statements and operators, for loops and while loops. When they look at the operators, they talk about the differences between equals/not equals, grater than/less than and two of the boolean operators - AND and OR.

DevShed:
PHP Statements and Beginning Loops
November 05, 2007 @ 09:34:00

DevShed has posted the latest part of their introduction to PHP series, this time focusing on one of the more useful features of the language - conditionals and loops.

We discussed statements briefly in our last article and even got a sneak peek of an IF-statement. Sure I mean, the image was blurry, and the moment it saw us it ran off into the forest. But we saw it. Honest. So in this article, we're going to take a much closer look at PHP statements and even start learning about loops.

They cover if statements (as mentioned) as well as introduce you to its companions, else and else if. The finish off the article with a brief look at one of the simpler loops, the for loop.

Loops In PHP
January 30, 2007 @ 12:26:00

On the HowToForge website, there's a new tutorial that teaches one of the fundamentals of working with PHP (or any language for that matter) - looping.

Let's move towards our today's lecture which is about Loops. There are certain conditions in which you need to execute the same block of code again and again. For example if you want to print ten consecutive equal signs in three lines to make a separator then you could do it with different methods.

The tutorial covers:

  • Basic Concept Of Loops
  • Types Of Loops (for, while, do/while, and foreach)
  • Assignment
  • some Related Articles
Code examples are given for all, and a good overview of working with the loops is given.

OSCON + NYPHPCon Call For Papers
February 13, 2006 @ 06:39:25

Adam Trachtenberg has this new post on his blog today that mentions his submission of papers to two different conferences (OSCON and NYPHPCon) and his perspectives on each.

OSCON is my favorite conference of the year. There's nothing else that provides such a wide range of interesting speakers and topics. I love learning about PHP, but I find it even more fascinating to see what the Perl and Python and Ruby guys are hacking on, or pick up JavaScript and AJAX tips, or heckle the Java programmers.

It's the first year for NYPHPCon, but Hans and the whole NYPHP crew are great guys, so I know they'll put on a teriffic show. When I still lived in NYC, I attended NYPHP user group meetings on a semi-regular basis, and they were even kind enough to let me present once or twice.

He also mentions the talks that he'll be presenting - more about web services in PHP, a "secrects of ext/soap", and a look at the "magical methods" in PHP5...

SitePoint PHP Blog:
J4P5 - Javascript For PHP5
January 20, 2006 @ 07:12:54

On the SitePoint PHP Blog today, there's a new post from Harry Fuecks talking about J4P5, a native PHP5 Javascript interpreter.

I kid you not. In fact this looks like a pretty serious attempt. You'll need to download and run yourself. There's grammar rules for Javascript in there and a Javascript runtime written in PHP. It passes the "it works" test'"the examples run straight out of $ unzip. Looking at what it does and the TODO list, aside from the Unicode issue strikes me J4P5 is already more than 50% of the way there.

Aside from novelty, one real world use might be an extension to SimpleTest's web testing capabilities. With a little work there's also potential to create an awesome Javascript source compressor'"the lexing patterns are all there.

He also mentions another project, metaphp, that builds a "higher level langauge" on top of PHP. The parser for it was used in the J4P5 project mentioned above...
