Using files as an alternative to simple database processes; PHP has many little hidden features within its vast tool set. One of these features – often overlooked – is its uncanny capability to handle complex files. Sure, everyone knows that PHP can open a file, but what can it really do with that file? What actually brought the true range of possibilities to my attention was a request from a prospective client who had “no money,” but wanted a dynamic web survey developed.
Not many PHP developers ever have the need to get down to the file level of content manipulation. This session will show them how easily PHP can do this low-level work and what aspects of it they should be careful of when they are “down there”.
