[article] [edit page] [discussion] [history]

From Humanitarian-FOSS Project Development Site

Due Monday, 2/4

  • Read Chapter 3 of Learning PHP/MySQL (23 pages) and answer the questions at the end of the chapter.
  • Exercise 2-1. Modify the code given in Homework 2 and save your file with the name hw2-1.php. Then open it in your browser. It should display your contact information as shown here.
  • Exercise 2-2. Modify your solution to Exercise 2-1 so that it displays exactly the same information but uses the following elements in your PHP code:
    • Variables to store your name, address, and email.
    • String concatenation to combine name, address, and email.
    • Only 1 print (or echo) statement.

Here's my solution.
