One of the most frequently used code in PHP or any programming language is the code that will increment or decrement the value of a variable. This code or expression is used in programs as simple as a page counter or as complicated as credit card processing.
4. How To Set A Default Value For An Argument Variable In A PHP Function

5. The PHP fread( ), filesize( ) and file_get_contents( ) Functions

6. Book Review – Object-Oriented PHP, Concepts, Techniques and Code by Peter Lavin
Object-Oriented PHP by Peter Lavin is a good book for any traditional/procedural PHP programmer who wants to switch to object-oriented PHP and also for programmers who want to switch from PHP 4 to PHP 5.
7. The PHP Return Statement
The PHP return statement is used to tell a PHP function to send information back to the calling program. This can be useful in many ways.
8. Joining Character Strings with PHP String Operators
There are two string operators for joining character strings in PHP; the concatenating assignment operator and the concatenation operator.
9. PHP Superglobal Variables and Register_Globals
PHP has a special kind of variable which is called a superglobal. The reason these variables are special is because they are automatically available to any PHP program without the programmer creating or defining them in his program. You can think of them as built-in variables.
10. The PHP Function and Function Call
There are basically two types of PHP functions. The first type is the built-in function. The second type of function is the user defined function. These are the functions that you write yourself. Then, you can call it into your program any time by coding a function call.
