Ok, Heres the deal...
At the moment I know nothing of php except that the name is a recursive acronym
Anyway, My friend is really into php and we made a bet that I cant learn php.
I have a client that wants to make puzzles and answers to these puzzles.
Its the kind that you try to find the quote like a maze w/o borders you follow letters.
Anyway, I was wondering if any of you guru's could help me learn towards the direction of that end.
I could do it in photoshop in less than 10 minits but he seems to think that php could do a better job.
So what do I want?
1) An interface, that lets me typen vertical and horozontal numbers that corospond to the number of squares Like 8x8 would be like a checker board that sort of thing. (or just a selection that would have a few pre built ones ( he says that there are only a few sizes))
2) Be able to click in the boxes to draw lines between them in a string fasion. (all of them would be connect in the exact center of the boxes and they are not that dynamic Ie they dont double back on each other)
3) Be able to print the final picture
(optional) After the lines are made up be able to type in the boxes and add letters, (hence the puzzle)
Ok, I'm not asking anyone to do this for me, that would be dumb, I'm asking for some help and pointers that could get me started, looking at the right tutorials to get me off in the right direction.
Cheers and thanks for any help you can bestow on my tatterd brain...
