RE: [PHP] ASP Option Explicit equivalent in PHP

2002-10-09 Thread John W. Holmes
I'm on a roll with the ASP questions these days, since I picked up the Chiliasp. Here's one: ASP has the function Option Explicit build in, it yells when you use variables without prior declaration, couldn't find anything like that in PHP documentation. Thanks in advance. If you set

Well, you can set error_reporting to E_ALL, which will cause PHP to complain if you use a variable without having it initialized. There is no exact equivalent to Option Explicit--and there still isn't any need to declare the variables, just to initialize them before use. Marco On Wed,

There's 2 ways to get that: use the php.ini setting ERROR_REPORTING, or the function error_reporting(). to see undeclared variable use, call error_reporting(E_NOTICE) at the top of your script. http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.error-reporting.php /nick R . Z . [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote in

[PHP] problem with SUM and Postgres

I can't figure out why the following code is not returning a column total: $sql1 = SELECT SUM(hostingcost) FROM $tablename WHERE webserver = '$webserver'; $hosting = pg_exec($connect, $sql1); echo $hosting; This returns: Resource ID #3 The only thing I can think of is that the hostingcost

Because pg_exec only executes the query and returns the resource that's associated with the returns. If you want to read the results, you should use pg_fetch_result(): $sql1 = SELECT SUM(hostingcost) FROM $tablename WHERE webserver = '$webserver'; $hosting_rs = pg_exec($connect, $sql1);

If you can guarantee that your body tags are lowercase and have no args, then I would check out strtok() in the string functions. If your body tags are not that easy to match then I suggest you use either a regex or write a state machine to parse the string. A good html parsing state machine
