Join FANN (Fast Artificial Neural Networks) library co-author as he introduces you to the wonderful world of artificial intelligence—with PHP!
This article provides an introduction to the power of neural networks through the Fast Artificial Neural Network library, including an implementation of a language classification system.

Low-impact Programming with PHP and OraclePHP and Oracle are an excellent combination for creating powerful and scalable web solutions. In this article, John Neil sheds light on those performance issues that might arise only under high-traffic situations—so that you can stop them before they ever start cropping up.

Creating forms is boring. Creating forms that can be neatly printed is boring and difficult. Creating forms and saving the user input into a PDF file is next to impossible… or is it? Richard Lynch shows us how you can create beautiful-looking (and beautiful-printing) forms using Adobe PDF and the FDF library, which allows you to programmatically add data to a PDF form file.

Spell checking with PHP
Mistakens hapen without a spel checker! That is a universal constant, but no one wants their typos to end up in the final product, be it an e-mail or a blog entry, and that’s what spell checking is all about. Unfortunately, for the most part this functionality is not available to many forms of web communications, such as forums, blogs and online comment systems. In this article, Ilia Alshanetsky will focus on two PHP ex-tensions that offer spell-checking functionality that can be used to validate and correct typos and spelling errors right from your scripts.

Traditionally, creating a client-side GUI interface to your applications was a laborious process that required specialized development tools—until… Mozilla?!

Join Jonathan Protzenko as he illustrates how a bit of XML, PHP and Javascript (and a Gecko-compatible browser) make it possible to create a top-notch GUI that is portable across multiple operating systems and requires no specialized programming languages.

The Filesystem as Your Database
Did you ever get a request to do a dynamic web page but have the client not want to pay the exorbitant amounts of money for database access? In this article, Peter MacIntyre will guide you in designing dynamic web pages (mostly form handling of data) on the cheap through the use of the file management functions found within PHP.
