  1. Thought from left field... If the blob is just text (ie no special characters/formatting/etc), perhaps as a test write it to a file, then (a) attach file to email and (b) read file into a new variable and insert that into the email.

    Form results to database

    You are still 'dividing" your text strings --'".$firstname/$lastname."', '".$day/$month/$year."', To join strings use the . (period on your keyboard) - $firstname = "Fred"; $lastname = "Flintstone" $fullname = $firstname . " " . $lastname; echo $fullname; // would display Fred Flintstone (note the space we added between the names $fulldate = $day . "/" . $month . "/" . $year; Also, you might look into date options for your database; using datetime might end up a better choice depending upon what you anticipate doing with its values. And, it might be a good practice to put your queries into a string, it makes it easier to test if the values are what you expect. And, (lots of ands LOL), you should validate your form data.

    Best way to achieve this?

    Just a couple of thoughts... 1. why haven't you tested? 2. I belive you mean to increment $start to 10 in your while loop rather than $finish (as $finish is already set to 10)

    Calculating the subset of time.

    Perhaps... new_start_time would be LATEST start time of the three new_end_time would be EARlIEST end time of the three those two would be the common intersection/duration of the three (would apply to more or less time sequences)

    Calculate area of a rectangle?

    Not sure what you mean by How are the functions supposed to work if they are not supplied the necessary information? BTW - I had a small typo above - here is corrected and TESTED version (it DOES work) <?PHP function area($a,$b) { return $a*$b; } function perimeter($a,$b) { echo "Length: " . $a . "<br>"; echo "Width : " . $b . "<br>"; echo "Perimeter: " . (2 * ($a + $b)) . "<br>"; echo "Area : " . area($a,$b); return; } $length = 10; $width = 5; echo perimeter($length,$width); ?>

    Calculate area of a rectangle?

    do you mean... $length=20; $width=10; function area($a,$b) { return $a*$b; } function perimeter($a,$b) { echo "Length: " . $a . "<br>": echo "Width : " . $b . "<br>"; echo "Perimeter: " . (2 * ($a + $b)) . "<br>"; echo "Area : " . area($a,$b); return; } }
