If you are trying to find the right PHP code for a project you're working on, you could thumb through all those books you have stacked on the bookcase behind you. But, I can tell you from personal experience that the answer will always be in the last book you look in. It never fails. Well, this little pocket-sized book is just what I needed and maybe you will too.

The author, Christian Wenz, has collected l00+ code snippets (PHP 4 and 5) and compiled them into this handy book. He not only gives you the most commonly used code but also some you may not have considered using before. He explains the code samples significantly so that you can customize the code to your specific needs. He has tested these snippets on various servers, so there shouldn't be any surprises when you use the code in real world situations.

I think this book is good as a handy Q &A reference, but you might want to read it in your spare moments. Wenz has given you some very good general information as well as discussed some of the common problems and pitfalls when writing web applications in PHP. The book is sectioned into logical categories for quick reference.

Manipulating Strings
Working with Arrays
Date and Time
Working with Web Forms
Cookies and Sessions
File Systems and Databases
Dynamic Data
XML
Remote Servers

Christian Wenz has worked in many areas of PHP programming and has written code for the PEAR repository. He also has written for several IT magazines and books.
