    that would help right? i'm looking for a script that will allow me to use it to feed it info like name, email and url then have it spit out a random person's name, email and url to a registered user.

    Its where you have a bunch of people who buy gifts for each other in secret.

    Here is my suggestion. Load up a mysql table with all people involved. Then just have everyone go to a page and put their name in, then query the table and select a record that has not gift assignment and assign it. I know that was very basic, just ask if you need more.

    Kevin's book is not the endall solution to learning php/mysql

    MySQL has plenty of documentation to help you build tables. This site has tutorials, devshed is good, Zend.com is good and php.net has all the docs as well.

    It would be pretty easy to put something to gether for this, if only I had the time, I would do it for you.

    No comment....

    Let's just say in my opinion, there are other(not saying better or worse, but other) ways that one can learn php and mysql.

    The problem is Kevin's book won't answer your questions, you'll still need to know PHP. So keep learning and don't depend on one source. I learned PHP by reading other tutorials and looking at source code, no books involved. I'm not saying it was the best way to learn, just another method.
