Programming PHP Second Edition or Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Administrators Companion

Programming PHP, Second Edition

Author: Rasmus Lerdorf

The arrival of PHP 5 is a boon to the multitude of new and experienced web programmers who depend on this unique scripting language. PHP has long been a favorite among open source web developers for processing forms and accessing databases. And because of shared hosting providers such as EarthLink and Hostway, PHP has become an ideal language for newcomers who need a simple way to build database-backed web sites.

In the new edition of Programming PHP, co-author Rasmus Lerdorf offers his unique knowledge and perspective as PHP s creator. PHP 5 has cleaned up the awkwardness of previous versions with new objects, better XML extensions, and new database extensions. Lerdorf and co-author Kevin Tatroe explain changes in PHP language syntax and programming techniques in a clear and concise manner, with numerous examples that illustrate both correct usage and common idioms. Their book also includes style tips and practical programming advice that will help readers not just become adequate PHP programmers, but good PHP programmers. For anyone interested in PHP 5, this is the guide.
