php 4 vs php 4.3
Posted 22 June 2006 - 02:22 PM
i started learn php yesterday and i bought a book called PHP 4 " a beginner's Guide" from Bill McCarty - Osborne..."
The shop where i bought the book for the money i have to spend only had php 4.3 from 2 authors from Portugal..(i'm Portuguese) and the book i bought..
my question is.. the php 4 and php 4.3 are too much different ?
i want your advice ..

Obviously the advantage between the two is go for the latest one as it has the bug fixes and the security holes fixes.

Although, there were a handful of new functions that were implemented in PHP 4.2.x, there would be no fundimental differences in the syntax or functionality of the language.

i search and i saw that i must use $_POST[name] ;
why all tutorials says that the name inside the array for example $_POST[name] use $_POST['name'] the ' but if i use i receive a error.. if i dont use.. its everything ok and running..
my other doubt.. which advantages i have passing variables into the url ?

But most tutorials was done before PHP 4.3.x was released, however still people tunr this setting register_globals on despite this setting can cause secuirity holes within a script.
