PHP in a Nutshell

Paul Hudson, PHP in a Nutshell. O'Reilly

PHP is a scripting language widely used on the Web that most people will have heard of, and many have used, including Mstation. O'Reilly's Nutshell series is about being a desktop quick reference. With some languages this a bit too terse to be starting of with, and is really meant as a memory refresher. PHP, however, is simple enough that you could possibly start with this and use some on-line resources to top up.

This book goes through the basics and then looks through what the language does by showing code snippets. You will find that PHP 5 has much enhanced object oriented capabilities and other, not so common things, like how to print angled text and draw graphics.
