  1. Thank you Larry, like I said, I am new to this stuff and the PHP manual is written for someone who knows this stuff and explains how to implement it in PHP, so for the most part I have trouble digesting it at best, and at worst I never really understand what it is saying. That's why I appreciate your books so much, you explain why and how things work with practical examples. By the way, any idea how/w the example code I started the topic works in calling the procedural function using object methods? Thanks, Tony
  2. Thank you Antonio, it's nice to hear that I wasn't just missing something basic about OOP. Any idea what is actually going on when those array type parameters are passes? Any reason why it makes the procedural function work with objects?
  3. Hi, still teaching myself, Larry's books are great. As I am not in the computer field, when I go to places like PHP.net for info I usually can't figure out what they are really trying to say to me. I hope that my question below is proper for this forum, if not please excuse my question and I will respectfully withdraw it. I bought the PHP 5 Advanced book really to learn OOP, something very new to me. I am able to work through Larry's examples an do eventually get things to work when I modify the examples, to be sure I understand how the coding works. I took Script 3.1 db_sessions.in
  4. Jonathan, Larry and HartleySan, thank you very much. The members of these boards are all so helpful.
  5. Everyone, thank you very much, Larry I have just started getting into your PHP 5 Advanced: Visual QuickPro Guide, it's a little deep for me but it to is very clear. These discussion boards are very useful and everyone is very helpful. That's a huge help for someone like me who has come to web design and scripting a little later in life than I think most do. I am still at a loss to understand what "./" does, and why XAMPP requires that relative path to get into the root of a site from one level out as opposed to the standard "../" that I normally have to use to go back one folder. I stum
  6. Jonathon thank you for the idea, I'll try that and HartleySan thanks for the links, I haven't checked them out yet but I will later today. Thank you both for your replies. For what it's worth I feel better knowing it isn't just me and that there are some differences between live hosting and XAMPP. Jonathan, just as you showed I to had to use a "./" to go one level back and get into the includes files when using XAMPP when I though I would have had to use: <?php include("../includes/file.php"); ?> Do either of you know of any other cases where you had to us
  7. Hi all, I wasn't sure where to post this so I figured I would try here. I am a big fan of the PHP6 MySQL 5 Visual QuickPro Guide, I learned PHP and MySQL exclusive through it, and when I had questions the associated forum members were always very helpful, so I thought I would try posting the question here. If this posting is inappropriate I apologize. Having come to web design and programming later in life, some of the basics caused me real problems. For example, when I develop sites I use XAMPP, per the QuickPro Guide. In the beginning I had trouble understanding how it worked but wi
