Quatrième de couverture
Master PHP, a 100% open source, cross-platform solution for server-side scripting!
Core PHP Programming is the first complete, practical guide to PHP 3.x for experienced Web developers. Discover how PHP borrows the best ideas from Java, Perl, and C to create a remarkably productive scripting environment. Then, with the guidance of a leading PHP developer, learn every technique you need to build fast and robust Web applications.
Master PHP syntax; then, review every PHP function, including I/O, data, and math functions; time, date, configuration, image, and database functions. See PHP at work in sample code that demonstrates sorting, searching, parsing, and string evaluation. Finally, walk through three complete Web/database integration applications, learning essential techniques for building HTML tables from SQL queries; tracking site visitors; storing content in databases, and much more.
- DEMONSTRATES how to write commercial quality code
- FEATURES dozens of nontrivial programs and examples -- no toy code!

I especially liked the last few chapters on good coding practices.
If I could have the author redo anything, it would be to expand on debugging, and to give a more detailed description of phpinfo(). Also, I really need an example of how to access HTTP_POST_VARIABLES when I'm using PHP3 for forms.
One major problem is the typo in all of the examples for mysql:
$mysql_link = mysql_connect(...);
and it should be:
$mysql_link = mysql_connect(...);
mysql_select_db is a function, not a variable.
1) It's a decent introduction to PHP, because it won't overwhelm the first-time web programmer, and pretty much assumes you don't know much of anything
2) Despite the amazingly disorgranized approach to the topic, certain sections are quite useful : regular expressions, various sorting methods, generating graphics on the fly, and basic approaches to integrating HTML & PHP are well covered.
3) Even though it's an apparent ploy to boost the page count of a book of somewhat shallow content depth, the fact that the type is larger than average with huge bold headlines for each function really helps if you're just flipping through looking for something specific.
4) The cover is actually attractive, unlike the usual monstrosity of a cover of Professional PHP Programming (why does WROX think we acutally want the faces of the authors staring up at you all the time ? ). OF course, Professional PHP Programming is far and away the best book on this topic if you have any programming experience.
What a disappointment. This is an incomplete and disorganized self-congratulatory reference.
Authors, probably paid by the page, integrate useless data separated by numberous blank pages.
Just 2 examples:
- 7 pages of the result of the command "configure --help", without comments. Completely useless.
- 4 pages to talk one page of "PHP tags"! (you know the < ?php >)
The description of the PHP functions is botched up and incomplete. Listings (samples) are numberous, but unfortunately they are rarely relevant for complex functions. Moreover the function title itself is only headed in "bold" while listings titles are bordered and shaded - it makes the whole hard to read/search.
Regarding the documentation of functions, when they're off the beaten track, usually the authors get their "joker"... << A full discusion of xxx is beyond the scope of this book >> (e.g. see the shared memory). Being a system hacker, the book often gave me the impression that the author(s) don't master what they talk about.
Self-congratulation: if you contributed to the open-source PHP, first, congratulations! PHP is a wonderful language, easy to use, easy to debug, performing well ; his numberous authors around the world deserve a big "Congratulation!". However when it comes to program PHP, one need a serious book talking in details about what we need in our daily work, as programmers. In this book you'll find tons of self-congratulory references, naming lots of people, but not actual material to help your work as a programmer. Well, if this is your intention to know more about the history of PHP, or if you belong to the list of people, go for it, you will get your [free] refill of EGO if you need that.
So let's talk about the key to the book, its index:
Thus, if you are looking for ...
M.Adler, J.Ahto, C.Alexander, T.Arntzen, S.Bakken, H.Bergius, A.Black, M.Boeren, S.Caraveo, J.Clark, E.Dijkstra, D.Eriksson, J.Gaill, A.Gutmans, C.Hagenbuch, S.Hughes, A.Isaacs, A.Karajannis, K.Koehntopp, F.Kromann, M.Matsumoto, T.May, P.Melo, T.Nishimura, L.Philips, E.Raymond, M.Rodeh, S.Ruby, R.Schwartz, D.Stenberg, Z.Suraski, G.Thomson, A.Slooten, E.Warnke, J.Zitting, A.Zmievski...
... you are lucky! They're all in the book
However if you have to *work* with PHP, don't look for instance for these important keywords, they're *not* in this book index: global, Super..., header(), strpos(), lock()...
Actually, it was so irritating not to find what I was looking for that php.net became my reference...
Hard to believe that honest people, besides the ones that contributed to PHP itself, can give more than 2 stars to this book. I believe authors have many friends :)
