I'm working on a project which uses PHP.

Lots of my problems are solvable by coming here, (especially regex problems, because PHP has the builtin preg_replace() function which implements Perl regular expressons), but is there something like PerlMonks for PHP coders?

    PHP is easier to learn than Perl, though messier to write large programs in, and the following has always sufficed for PHP language questions:

    I use Perl for heavy algorithms work (high work, low number of accesses) and PHP for most of my web apps (low work, high number of accesses), since I don't have access to mod_perl.

      That's probably the only good thing of PHP, the online documentation and handy lookup (, but luckilly good monk Juerd provides us that for Perl too on his site:


      All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.

[1nickt]: stevieb it's just a simple web page with a POST form. You can set the attribute so when the user's browser opens a file manager to select a file to upload, it will only show those o f the type you want to get.
[1nickt]: Question for my learned friends: is there a word meaning "CSV-like" i.e. I want to say that I accept CSV files, but the separator doesn;t have to be a comma. Or is that implicit these days?
