Execute Linux commands in PHP by using backticks

in PHP added by rvdavid, on 1/8/2008 back ticks command line linux

You can execute linux commands within a php script - all you have to do is put the command line in backticks (`). Recently, I had to upload an archive to a server which did not allow ssh.

Stay away from Bloated Class Methods, actually, bloated ANYTHING!

in PHP added by rvdavid, on 22/3/2008 classes methods oop php5 principles tips

Why are there so many examples of bloated PHP methods out there?! I see a lot of bloated methods being used in examples through sites like phpclasses.org and a very large chunk of a project I’ve recently picked up which a few developers have worked on. Guys! remember! There is no good reason to bloat your methods to over 10-20 lines long and on the rare occasions that you do exceed 10 - 20 lines it would be more the exception to the rule as opposed to being the rule itself!

In an effort to remedy this, we need a way to encapsulate the request data into an object. By doing this, we are centralising access to request data through the one channel - the HTTP Request object.

Template View and View Helper Design Patterns in PHP

in PHP added by rvdavid, on 6/12/2007 advanced tutorials oo programming php5

The Template View and View Helper patterns lend themselves nicely when it comes to developing a View Layer solution for PHP, or so I found out with the recent refactoring of Cubix (dubbed Cubix II). This View layer duo is very much a great candidate for a 'tag team'. Each component performs a role and together make up a big part of the View Layer.
