    Where is the code archive?

    I bought Kevin Yanks latest book, and it mentions that the example php scripts in the book are availabel for download at the code archive, I have found one link on this entire site so far, that was labeled code archive, but there were no scripts just another ad for buying the book.

    Any help would be appreciated, since I don't wish to have to retype everything from the book.

    i generally find that retyping code reinforces what I have just read. or creating something a little more relevant to me than the example given.

    I agree with Ghandi, but also find hacking code is a good way to learn...

    I also foud that finding the code archive was hard... the following link worked for me:
    http://www.sitepoint.com/books/phpmysql1/code.php

    but i'm not sure if that's the first edition's code, or the 2nd editions??
    can anyone shed some light?? Kevin??

    thanks ;-)

    yes, I typically dont' mind typing but when trying to get up to speed fast, it helps to be able to cut and paste and go from there, then tweak as needed to learn how each item works. I thank you all for the links, I have the download now. Have a great weekend.

    Anyone have a good tutorial, for php with sql images? I want to have a catalog online or something like that, or even a contacts database with a persons photo, just a project/task I would like to try next.

    hey entoone

    i've recently just built myself an online photo gallery for all my photojournal stuff... mainly because i wanted to be able to have a blurb about the image, but didn't want to have to create 528 html files, and then manage each ones content etc...

    so i created 2 database tables; one for the galleries, and one for all the photos... and i found the best way to do it was just to use the image name in a column, instead of loading the image into the database... - mainly cos from what i read, people suggest it's a bit resource heavy for the database, and php...

    anyways... just do something like:
    /path/to/image/file/<?php echo $imagefile; ?> in the image tag.... if that suits your purpose, and then upload the files to your server...

    if you wanna get more into it, you could do an image upload, which passes the image name to the database insert query... which would take care of ftp for ya....

    anyways - just my 2 cents...

    ;-)
