PHPMaster.com:
5 Inspiring (and Useful) PHP Snippets
Jul 02, 2012 @ 10:58:45

On PHPMaster.com there's a new tutorial that shares some useful PHP snippets that you could use in your development.

"X PHP Snippets" type articles abound on the Internet, so why write another one? Well, let's face it… the PHP snippets in them are generally lame. Snippets that generating a random string or return $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"] for the IP Address of a client really aren't that interesting and are of modest usefulness. Instead, here's five snippets that you'll no doubt find interesting and useful, presented along with the problems that inspired them. I hope the creativity in many of them inspire you to write better and more creative code in your own day-to-day endeavors.

Their "five tips" are about:

  • Generating CSV files from an array of data
  • Autoloading classes (in a PSR-0 way)
  • Parsing data with the unpack function
  • Templating in HTML (creating a "View" object)
  • Using file_get_contents as a cURL Alternative
