Becoming PHP 6 Compatible
Dec 05, 2007 @ 11:13:00

On the Making the Web blog, there's this post that talks about looking forward with your code and making it ready for when PHP6 comes around.

If you want to make use of PHP 6 when it comes, you're going to have to write your new scripts so they are compatible, and possibly change some of your existing scripts. To start making your scripts PHP 6 compatible, I've compiled a list of tips to follow when scripting.

There's only five things in his list (like "stop using magic_quotes" and "don't register long arrays") but the comments provide many more additional gotchas to look out for and new features that will be included.

PHP Video: Processing Forms with PHP - part 2
Aug 29, 2006 @ 07:23:02

The KillerPHP Blog is back today with another video, this time it's part two of a very useful topic, expecially for those just learning PHP - processing forms with PHP from Stefan Mischook.

Having covered the basics of forms in the first video, I now jump into the actual PHP code and introduce (for the first time) a built-in PHP construct called 'Super Globals'.

We learn that Super Globals are associative arrays (that they hold lots of useful information,) that are automatically created by the PHP engine.

You can check out the video here.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
A pro-PHP Rant
Feb 22, 2006 @ 06:59:12

In a follow-up to his brief opinion on the Tim Bray comments about PHP, Harry Fuecks has poested this longer rant on the SitePoint PHP blog today.

He looks at eight different topics:

  • It's the execution model
  • Excellent database support
  • PHP Arrays
  • The SPL Extension
  • PHP 5(.1) XML Support
  • The stuff that says it works...works
  • Unicode and ICU
  • Stuck in Little boxes

For each of them he explains them briefly, dispelling any rumors that might have come up from those not as experienced with the PHP language.

Update: if you'd like to help promote it, it's been digged.
