Michelangelo van Dam:
PHP arrays - simple operations
Jan 06, 2016 @ 09:13:29

Michelangelo van Dam continues his series on some of the basics of PHP with another look at arrays (started in this article).

Like all things in life, we need to start with simple things. So, in order to understand what arrays are in PHP, we need to take a look at the PHP manual to read what it is all about. [...] The thing with PHP is that an array is probably one of the most used data structures in web applications build with PHP and used for a wide variety of purposes.

He covers the basics of:

  • storing multiple values in an array and pushing additional values onto the end
  • removing the last item added to the array
  • pulling the first element off of the array

In his next article, he plans on expanding this introduction to arrays by looking at associative arrays.

POP before SMTP Authentication for PHPMailer
Nov 18, 2005 @ 05:45:20

Richard Davey has this new post today on his blog with a look at integrating POP authentication into the PHPMailer package.

Although it provides sending via SMTP, it only supports direct SMTP Authentication. Which was great until an application I built moved host and needed "POP before SMTP" Authentication instead. So I wrote this class. I figured I'd post it here incase anyone else had a use for it.

This is built for PHP Mailer 1.72 and was not tested with any previous version. It was developed under PHP 4.3.11 (E_ALL). It works under PHP 5 and 5.1 with E_ALL, but not in Strict mode due to var deprecation (but then neither does PHP Mailer either!). It follows the RFC 1939 standard explicitly and is fully commented.

From there, he shows you how to use it, including the classes, creating a new POP3 object and setting the user/pass for it, as well as a little (quick) documentation on how to use it. You can grab the files for this update here.
