Christian Weiske:
PHP manual viewers
January 31, 2014 @ 10:07:39

In this latest post to his site Christian Weiske shares three PHP manual viewers he finds useful (besides the actual PHP.net manual) and can be used offline.

The PHP documentation is really good. It covers almost all parts of the language and is filled with examples that help you grasp a function's meaning and usage really fast. And since PHP is a grown language, it's function naming and parameter order are often confusing - requiring you to look up the manual more often.

The three he suggests are:

  • pman - PHP manual pages
  • the xCHM version of the manual
  • Zeal, which also has support for lots of other docs from other languages/tools

Rob Allen's Blog:
Fixing -- in WordPress
March 23, 2009 @ 07:53:20

After being frustrated that the WordPress blogging system was "eating" his double dashes (like in a ./configure string), Rob Allen went on the offensive and dove into the WordPress code to fix things.

One thing that I've noticed is that whenever I used -- in a post, such as this one, WordPress converted the -- to &emdash; which whilst very pretty doesn't work so well for people trying to understand command line switches. [...] I tracked it down to the wptexturize function in the wp-includes/functions-formatting.php file.

He found and used this plugin (disable_wptexturize) and the issue disappeared.
