Thanks for this small guide, it's helped me further understand some aspects of PHP, I'm still a newbie at this, and I'm hoping to develop using simplistic guides & the use of the php.net manual -- That's great.

Thanks,
Chris.

Comma concatenation is often overlooked, in my opinion.
If working with large blocks of text it can reduce the load somewhat.

Example:
PHP Code:
<?php
echo $var1 $var2 $var3;
?>
Is a lot slower than:
PHP Code:
<?php
echo $var1 $var2 $var3;
?>

NOTE: Comma concatenation only works with echo
if you use print you will get a syntax error message

^Very good point which I completely forgot about!

It also really only effects variables containing large amounts of text, HTML, or something similar.

Websites I tend to use for learning code, not just php are:

w3schools.com
codeacademy.com
http://code.google.com/edu/languages...ics/index.html

If I think of anymore I'll post them up

Technically, that's b/c it's not a concatenation. Just echoing one after the other.

It would have the same performance as
echo var1;
echo var2;
echo var3;

PHP stood for "Personal Home Page" until the end of PHP version 3 or so, when Zend took over the majority of it's development. Presently it's the recursive acronym "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor", or something like that.

As far as learning PHP, once I had the basics of the language down I started looking at some commonly used open source projects such as PhpMyAdmin, PhpSysInfo, and Wordpress. I tried to think of a very simple fix/refactor/new feature and I spent a weekend trying to implement it.
