Rather than copying the code from the book into php.........and as for the right "typos" in the book.............me being a novice will probably type in the wrong cone, is there anything online supporting the book whereby I can copy the code and then paste it into php.
Title: Core PHP
Author: Leon Atkinson and Zeev Suraski (Yes one of the creators of PHP
What's is about:
Chapter one covers the language in general, waht variables are, array's, funtions ect. (more advanced users can skip this)
Chapter two is a funtion reference.
Chapter three and four, give real live situations, and cover topics very interesting in commercial enviroments.
I have this book and it's worth almost every penny (the first chapter is really for the novice)
Hi, I'm a signature virus. Put me in your signature and help me spread.
This is an odd book request. But Are there any books giving assistance for things like contracts, etc... between coders, site owners, artists, etc...? You know, so if you work on a business page for money you dont get shafted cause nothing is in paper?
I recently purchased PHP For The World Wide WebSecond Editionby Larry Ullman and I must say it is so far very well written. It is easy to understand and isn't written by someone who wants to expand their ego by making everyone else feel 'stupid'.
The book comes along with a web site where you can get sample code etc. Also on the site is a forum where the author answers questions. You can also email him directly. Which is really great support for a book, it shows the author really has a passion for teaching and helping others learn this wonderful language
What is really needed is 'An Idiots Guide to PHP'.
There are lots of excellent reference manuals out there but I am still looking for one that is aimed at someone with little to no prior knowledge.
Perhaps that is an impossible dream?
Is there not a PHP for Dummies out yet? It might be an idea to send a letter to Wiley Publishers if not. They seem to have cornered the market with the Dummies series. Their HTML for Dummies is what got me started 4 years ago.
