1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment, July 7 2004
This review is from: PHP Pocket Reference (Paperback)
Don't buy this book; you won't use it. The function explanations are rarely more than a sentence, and worst of all they are many times self-referential.
"string urlencode(string str) - URL-ecodes a string." The function name makes that clear, but what does that mean, if you don't already know? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of referring to a book for clarification?
"array pathinfo(string path) - Returns information about a certain string." Does that description clarify anything beyond the function name?
They should have trimmed out more functions and included more information about the most important ones. Sadly, this is also the book used in Dreamweaver MX 2004 for online help, which is frustrating.
