Product description

Amazon Review

PHP is attracting a lot of attention as an open-source alternative to Microsoft's Active Server Page technology. PHP scripts run on the server, so there is no browser compatibility issue. It is most often used with the Apache Web server running on Unix, but there is a Windows version as well.

This slim quick reference is a handy companion for all PHP developers. The author, Rasmus Lerdorf, is the creator of PHP, and PHP Pocket Reference is truly authoritative. It does not assume any prior knowledge and explains basics like how to embed PHP script in HTML, how to use variables, which data types PHP supports, all the PHP operators, and control structures such as if statements and while loops. There are examples of form handling and integration with the MySQL database server, often used with PHP. The book continues with a comprehensive reference to all the PHP functions, organized by function type. Categories include ODBC, Oracle, Date and Time, Graphics, Encryption and XML.

PHP Pocket Reference is best suited to experienced programmers. One annoying feature is the lack of an index, although with only just over 100 pages it isn't too difficult to find what you are looking for.--Tim Anderson

About the Author

started the PHP Project back in 1995 and has been actively involved in PHP development ever since. Also involved in a number of other Open Source projects, Rasmus is a longtime Apache contributor and foundation member. He is the author of the first edition of the PHP Pocket Reference, and the co-author of Programming PHP.
