for the World Wide Web:
Visual QuickPro Guide
Welcome to the companion Web site for the first edition of the book PHP Advanced for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickPro Guide, written by Larry Ullman and published by Peachpit Press. This page is specifically for the book’s first edition, published in December 2001 (ISBN 0-201-77597-2). The second edition was published in February 2007 (ISBN 0-321-37601-3). If you are using the second edition of the book, you should go to that page. Note that the first edition is horribly outdated by now and you really should be using a more current edition, if at all possible.
Beside the handful of pages dedicated to this edition of this book, there’s plenty of other content on LarryUllman.com that you might be interested in. Use the “Post Categories” links above to browse by general topic.

Every script in the text is available here to be downloaded. Some things you should know:
