One of the best PHP references.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PHP Reference: Beginner to Intermediate PHP5 (Paperback)I am glad I purchased this book. It has almost all common PHP functions with a comprehensive index. The beauty about it is that it shows code output so you can have a feel of how a particular PHP snippet will look like in a browser after it's parsed. If you are programming and you cannot somehow remember the syntax of a 'foreach' loop, you can quickily look it up in this book. Each function has examples. The MySQL section is really good. A table is provided with SQL commands and their output, including 'Joints'. It has loads of examples. The output has a darker background, to make it stand out and is very readble.
It may not be a big deal though for advanced users since they may find it elemenatry,if they know ALL PHP functions by HEART! So I think there is something for everyone. I could not find MySQLI_CONNECT and that surprised me because the book is newer enough to include it. I move with it if I need to read something while on public transport or during TV commercials!
