SitePoint PHP Blog:
The Joy of Regular Expressions [1]
September 26, 2006 @ 08:02:45

Sometimes, it's just not enough to sit and try to teach theory about something in programming - it's better to just jump right in and take things as they come. That's what Harry Fuecks thinks, at least in his latest post on the SitePoint PHP Blog - a look at the "Joy of Regular Expressions".

He does go over a bit of the theory and why they are so invaluable, but it's a short section before he gets to the heart of the article - working with regular expressions for:

  • positive matching
  • matching all instances in a given string
  • finding an exact match
  • matching the start of a string
  • validation of the contents of a string
  • checking the length of a string
There's simple examples included for each of the items to help you get an idea of how they'd work.

Tobias Schlitt's Blog:
Comfortable PHP editing with VIM -5-
August 23, 2006 @ 09:55:06

Tobias Schlitt has picked by up his "comfortable PHP editing in VIM" series today with this lengthy post with loads of helpful VIM tips to share with PHP developers everywhere.

More than a half year after my last "Comfortable PHP editing with VIM" post, I take up this series again, although I decided to let it die in January. Sadly I did not find any time by now, to extend PDV (the PHP Documentor for VIM plugin) further than it's version 1.0.1, which is available through vim.org and on my SVN. Anyway, I collected a lot of (at least for me) helpful VIM tips, which I'd like to share here

The post contains tons of tips on subjects such as:

  • Find matching brace
  • Indenting and unindeting
  • Emergency help
  • Macros
and many more. For each subject, there's an explaination of a situation you might need it in and, of course, the tip itself. He also links to the earlier parts of the series (one through four) for those wanting to catch up.
