Hello, got a few gift cards at Borders and looking to buy a few PHP based books. I have already decided on one, PHPEclipse, which teachs how to use the IDE Eclipse Editor with the PHP plugin to develop code.

I am looking for something that is a good guide to OO programming in PHP 5. I have been coding in PHP for about 3 years, no OO, and would like to learn. I have experience with OO languages though, C++, C#, so I don’t want anything trival, but at the same time nothing expecting genius.

I was also looking for a book how to use the smarty template engine with PHP.

Thanks for the book recommendations.

PET, please do not post in old threads. 

Redarrow, you know better.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
