4.0 out of 5 stars Someday I really need to start using PHP, August 1, 2006
This review is from: PHP 5 in Practice (Paperback)
I started my web site in the 90's and used Perl for everything. Over the years, Perl has just intertwined my site so thoroughly that I HAVE to use it. But I do recognize that PHP is the more popular choice, so I'm always interested in books like this.

I like the "Quick Hits" sections - these are at the beginning of chapters and just give quick examples of relevant functions. The first chapter started with string handling, certainly a common task in web programming and it was helpful to see that quick overview.

I also liked that the author deals with real world examples. The title is "in practice", and he lives up to that. He examines real web site problems and desires, and provides PHP solutions.

I enjoyed this. If I can get off my duff and move forward with PHP, I'm sure this will be helpful.
