Sample Chapter: PHP Pocket Reference
(Page 1 of 10 )

For those of us who have been fortunate enough to pick up PHP and run with it, most of us love it. I personally think PHP is the best programming language in existence today because of it's flexible, open-source nature, dozens of add-on libraries, and infinite number of support resources.

In this article we're going to look at a sample chapter from O'Reillys "PHP Pocket Reference" book. Me and a couple of other DevArticles.com developers are currently working on a new site, and I actually have the pocket reference here just when I get stuck on something small, such as which parameters to pass to a certain function, etc.

This book was published in 2000, so *some* of the functions are out of date, however 95% of them are still fine. Obviously global variables are now deprecated, so you'd use $_POST instead of $HTTP_POST_VARS, etc.

The PHP Pocket Reference is 120 pages long and is only $9.95. You can read user reviews and purchase it at Amazon by clicking here.
