Google webmaster tools

I decided to have a look at the Google Webmaster Tools. I’ve setup accounts for and So far I’m not very impressed at all. Maybe it’s because the accounts are just new, but there is basically no data in any of my sites, so it’s not very useful at all. I guess it’s just wait and see if data ends up being loaded or not.

Testing slib ‘scriptify’ and friends

I’ve written a few little functions to help me sanitise content before including it in automatically generated JavaScript. The idea is to prevent code injection.

You can see the tests for my function in the scriptify_test.php file on ProgClub Member Net (where is hosted). You can view the scriptify unit tests in pcrepo.

Unit testing is fun! :)

Strings in PHP

I’ve been looking into how strings work in PHP. Basically if you use a single quote the string is literal and the only two quotes accepted are \\ for backslash and \’ for single quote.

If you use double quotes on the other hand then backslash is the quote character so you can do things like \n for new line or \t for tab. Also you can use variable names in double quotes strings. I still don’t totally understand things like magic quotes work though.
