This script trys to check for any direct Absolute Path call for the function include, include_once, require, require_once, fopen, file_get_contents, and file_put_contents in the code, and report them back.
Well, it’s a bit useful for detecting were are some of the hardcoded paths are used into a PHP Project. Hope you will find it useful.

Every now and then I recieve some emails from Zend about training (I have an account there for the certifications I got), usualy they go directly into the trash. Continue reading Zend Training, does it really worth it
I’ve been expermenting with ruby for sometime now, and I’m really enjoying it, and I’m now coping with ‘#’ comments 🙂
Now one of the points that’s about functions, is how do they pass, by value, or by reference. So to try out Ruby. Continue reading Pass by Value or Reference or Handle
What I’m presenting here is an example for Unit tests making us change the design to make a better design for our application. Continue reading Unit test, making better designs
When you have more than one gentoo machine, a good thing to do to manimize the bandwidth usage, is to run some local mirrors, so that you would get the file only once, for all the machines.

Working in PHP, all this time, and the big uses you find in regex, and all the string processing we need to, could make us forget our old friend that can easily solve a problem.
sscanf, do you remember it, well, for quite some time I didn’t, until I saw it in a random code I found online, so this post is a reminder that this function exists.
An example, if we have a date, lets say coming from a Mysql DB, (ofcourse you can use strtotime, but sometimes it has it’s limitations) and you want to get the year, month, day, hour, minutes, and seconds, and you have it in a string, you can parse it with some splits, but 1 call of sscanf can do the job.
$date = ‘2007-05-18 22:15:03’;
and thats all.
I’ve written a small CAPTCHA library, in an OO style, and I love to share it with you
when it comes to IMAP programming, you should be very careful about IMAP commands you are issuing, an unneeded call can make your page much slower, that’s why usually IMAP Developers avoid programming with the php IMAP functions, yes they are written in C (c-client), but they don’t give you the commands you want exactly, so usually you would go for native IMAP (i.e. writing commands to a socket, and parsing the output).

Sometimes while you are coding, you need some kind of a wrap for some primitive data type such as an integer, just to add some feature that is not available directly from that primitive data type, or just to give it some identity. Continue reading Value Design Pattern
Perhaps no other coding practice is as important as testing your code. Also in the nature of Business Development, where parts of your code always change on the request of a client (including Management), or even when you want to make your code run with better performance, Automated tests are highly needed, you can’t just spread your print statements all over your code every time you need to test it.
