PHP is a server-side, cross-platform, HTML embedded scripting language that borrows the best ideas from Java, Perl, and C -- while enabling you to get started in minutes, and build significant scripts almost immediately thereafter. Already supported on Apache and many other Web servers, PHP is completely open-source -- and extraordinarily productive. Core PHP Programming is the first complete, readable, and practical guide to PHP, containing all you need to get results -- including PHP source code for several top Web server platforms. Discover how PHP works with a Web server, and why it's superior to other server-side scripting environments. Master PHP syntax, including variables, operators, expressions, control statements, functions, arrays, classes, and more. Review every PHP function, including I/O, data, and math functions; time, date, and configuration functions; and both image and database functions. Understand sorting, searching, parsing, and string evaluation; then walk step-by-step through three Web/database integration applications, including building HTML tables from SQL queries; tracking visitors; and storing content in a database. You'll find chapters on integrating PHP with HTML; program design; optimization and debugging, and much more.

Revised for PHP version 4, the new edition of Core PHP Programming is a comprehensive tutorial and reference to one of today's hottest scripting languages. Part tutorial and part reference, this book will get beginners started with PHP, as well as provide a convenient desktop resource for more experienced PHP developers.

Early sections show what PHP is and how it works, with basic data types, flow control, and other topics you'll need to get started. But the heart of the book is a full reference to PHP 4 functions. Organized by topic, this text provides over 400 pages of reference to several hundred PHP calls, along with a description of what they do. Clearly organized and presented, this book will help you find what you need quickly (instead of relying on PHP's often cumbersome online help). In particular, readers will appreciate the coverage of database functions, including the separate calls for MySQL, ODBC, and Oracle. You'll also see what PHP can do with XML.

The last part of the book reverts to tutorial mode, first with a section on algorithms that discusses ways to sort and search PHP arrays. Final sections look at some strategies you can use to integrate PHP into the software design process, in which the strategies of combining HTML content with dynamic PHP scripts are shown. There is also useful advice for increasing performance with PHP. (It would seem that upgrading to PHP 4 is a must, because the new version offers a real performance boost.)

PHP is clearly a popular choice for Web applications today. If you buy just one book on PHP, consider Core PHP Programming. It offers an approachable tutorial that will put basic PHP script development into the hands of beginners, and provides a useful reference for everyday development once you've gotten a handle on how to use it. --Richard Dragan

3.0 von 5 Sternen Decent Docs, Good examples, Helpful cd 12. Februar 2000
I give the book a thumbs up. It is the first book on PHP and I expected it to be a general reference / tutorial book covering the basics--which it certainly does. Sure you could use the on-line docs, and there are some good on-line tutorials but this puts it all in one place and makes it easy to take on the bus. Sure, if you've mastered the docs and on-line tutorials available, the book is a nice hard copy but you may not find much new info--but as a beginner, I found the book helpful. Newer printings have corrected an error which slipped in early but I strongly recommend reading the review by Lara Fabans below.
In addition to code examples from the book and PHP itself, the CD contains the Xitami web-server for Win 95/98. Though instructions are installation are only given for NT, the Win 95/98 installation is the easiest thing in the world (surprised me!) with a couple of notable exceptions. (1) When I installed Xitami I had a hard time setting up the PHP filter through the admin mechanism. For some reason the filter information isn't saved so I've had to create and manually edit a deaults.cfg (see xitami.cfg for template). Once you do this PHP works great, except that...
(2) The CD does NOT include a MySQL server for Win 95/98. This you will find on the MySQL website, but making all three work together has been a bear. Without MySQL many of the examples simply will not run. It probably best just to let some hosting service do all the dirty work. But gee, it would have been nice to test PHP scripts from home and stay off-line...
But am I sorry I bought the book? No way, I'd still be on square on glaring at on-line refs. without it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not a bad book but.... not good value either 3. Januar 2000
This book does not know what it is trying to be - it is an OK copy of the online docs - but is bulked up (lots of space and a BIG font) to make it look like it covers a lot of ground. This makes it look like a detailed tutorial - and this it definitely is not.
I came to the book (and PHP) as a complete novice - and found that there was a simple lack of good examples - all of the functions are documented - but there is little in the way of description as to why you would want to use any of them.
At the end of the day I felt that I would have been better off printing out the docs that down load from the PHP web site.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good and Bad 20. Juni 1999
Mr. Atkinson is a nice guy... but this book was rushed to market, and will be qualitatively beneath the next PHP books. As a handy paper source, it is sufficient.
After flying through this book, I was comfortably writing 300 line PHP scripts to access Oracle databases and contextually format very complicated web pages. My general happiness with life right now is probably due more to PHP than to this book.
One example of this book's problems: function calls are sorted alphabetically. Thus, you'll get to "closedir" way before you get to "opendir" or "readdir". Also, the function titles go like "string urlencode(string url_text)" -- which means that you have to read the SECOND word of every heading to see the (alphabetical) function name and the FIRST word to see what the function returns. Function descriptions are generally sorted into "File", "Database", "RegExp" etc., which further frustrates any quick reference attempts.
The book is not in depth. If you're wondering whether you can regexp with a variable during a directory read, you're out of luck. I found myself wishing Larry Wall (of Perl) had written the book.
The thing is, I probably know more about PHP after one week exposure to PHP than the book does. A good reference book is supposed to constantly refresh and enlighten you. Lastly, keep your pen handy, because this early edition's code has some errors that you'll want to correct on the page. The CD-ROM also has those errors.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wie der Vorgänger schon super 23. November 2000
Das Buch über PHP-4 ist wie schon das Buch über PHP-3 von Leon Atkinson sehr empfehlenswert. Es ist ein gutes Nachschlagewerk für Profis und kann auch als Einstieg genutzt werden. Ich bin mit dem Buch sehr zufrieden. Auch wenn der Preis etwas zu hoch ist.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Burn before reading 28. Juni 2000
I was fairly warned by Amazon reviewers that this book issimply a print version of the PHP functions found on [the internet], but I went ahead and bought it anyway. I figured that the author must have added something to the online documentation. As it turns out, the author's additions consist mostly of typos and grammatical errors. I wouldn't mind it so much if Atkinson had at least added a useful topical index. Instead, the index is largely a listing a PHP's functions. Why bother? Considering PHP's power and elegance, I wouldn't be surprised if Core PHP Programming turns out to be an act of sabotage hatched by the Microsoft folks. Fortunately, the language not only survived this attack, but has flourished.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Do not buy this book. 27. Mai 2000
This book is useful as an expensive alternate to the online function list, but it really offers nothing usful in itself. If you are new to programming a book that contains mistakes mistakes in a large portion of its sample code is not very helpful in getting over the learning curve. The examples are at best half jobs. Most of the function examples are exceptionally partial, and there is little commentary to fill this hole.
