Too many mistakes,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Programming PHP (Paperback)
I found this book a good introduction to PHP. But, it has a lot of mistakes. I think these have happened when the book was updated to cover PHP 5.
For example, when it describes constructors it says the constructor is a function named __construct(). But then it immediately gives an example where the constructor for class Person is a function called Person(). The former is PHP 5, the latter is PHP 4. Perhaps the update was a rush job.
If you can't already program in C or C++ then this book may not be for you. If you can, then it's OK.
