Yes, in simple scripts like the one above, the new way of doing things in PHP 4.2 does often require more typing. But hey, look on the bright side — you could start charging by the keystroke!
PHP is designed to interact with HTML and PHP scripts can be included in an HTML page without a problem. In an HTML page, PHP code is enclosed within special PHP tags. When a visitor opens the page, the server processes the PHP code and then sends the output (not the PHP code itself) to the visitor's browser. Actually it is quite simple to.
In the previous example we embedded some PHP scripts into an HTML web page. We can reverse this by putting the HTML tags into the PHP commands. The following example contains a PHP script which is designed to output the HTML necessary to display a simple page. As with the previous examples, create this file, upload it to your web server and load it into a web browser.
Your first CLI script. Writing CLI scripts is, for the most part, similar to writing PHP scripts for web use - you have all the same functionality available to you as you would when writing for the web. As such, the scripts we're going to look at will specifically highlight special functionality and clever possibilities for the CLI SAPI. To begin with, we are going to look at argc and argv.
If Python has write-access for the directory where the Python program resides, it will store the compiled byte code in a file that ends with a .pyc suffix. If Python has no write access, the program will work anyway. The byte code will be produced but discarded when the program exits. Whenever a Python program is called, Python will check, if a compiled version with the .pyc suffix exists.
For more books on PHP see Resources: Books on Web Designing. Simple PHP mail script. This script is not only educational, but also applicable for practical Web development. It allows you to place a simple form for sending emails on any HTML page. The script shows you how to gather user input, perform form validation with PHP, and send an email.
It is not to a point of providing scripts here but I have found that it is easy in PHP to read .htm files and one can write and append to files almost as easily - including those in the password protected areas - provided that they already exist and that the permissions have been set to read and write for the owner group and other in advance. This can be done using the TSOHost Plesk control.
