1. How To Increment and Decrement In PHP
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.
2. The PHP Variable
The PHP variable is the work horse of the PHP programming language. It works like one of those cardboard storage boxes that you can buy from the office supply store. The storage box is empty (or null) until you put something inside. That something is the information or data that you wish to store
3. 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.

5. PHP & MySQL Your visual blueprint for creating dynamic, database-driven Web sites
Keeping a good PHP and MySQL reference next to your computer, such as this book by Janet Valade, will make your programming job easier. What makes this book such a handy resource is the way it is organized.
6. The PHP Associative Array
An associative array uses index keys but these keys are not numeric as in the regular array. The keys in an associative array are usually character strings.
7. Book Review – PHPEclipse A User Guide by Shu-Wai Chow
This book by Shu-Wai Chow will show you how to install, setup and use PHPEclipse which is a popular open source IDE (integrated development environment) for PHP programmers.
8. 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.
9. The PHP Break Statement
The PHP break statement is placed within the code of a loop statement to cause your program to break out of the loop statement. Below is an example of a break statement that has been added to a loop statement.
