Little by little PHP is becoming a language that allows us to do everything.

Initially designed to perform little more than an accountant and a guestbook, PHP has experienced in a short time a real revolution and, from its functions, in these moments you can perform a multitude of useful tasks for web development:

Email functions

We can with an amazing facility send an e-mail to a person or a list parameterizing a whole series of aspects such as the e-mail of origin, subject, person to answer...

Other functions less frequent but of undoubted utility to manage emails are included in your library.

Sending email by PHP

Database management

It is difficult to conceive a modern site, powerful and rich in content that is not managed by a database.

The PHP language offers interfaces for accessing most of the commercial databases and by ODBC to all possible databases in Microsoft systems, from which we can edit the content of our site with absolute simplicity.

PHP compatibility with databases

File management

Create, delete, move, modify ... any kind of more or less reasonable operation that can occur to us can be done from a wide library of functions for the management of files by PHP. We can also transfer files by FTP from sentences in our code, protocol for which PHP has also planned a large number of functions.

Image processing

Obviously, it is much easier to use Photoshop for a treatment of images but... What if we have to deal with thousands of images sent by our Internet users?

The truth is that it can be very tedious to standardize in size and format thousands of images received day after day. All this can also be effectively automated using PHP.

It may also seem useful to create dynamic buttons, that is, buttons in which we use the same design and only change the text.

We can for example create a button by making a single call to a function in which we enter the style of the button and the text to be entered, automatically obtaining the desired button.

From the library of graphical functions, we can do this and much more.

Many other functions designed for the Internet (cookie processing, restricted access, electronic commerce ...) or for general purposes (mathematical functions, chain operation, dates, spell checking, file compression ...) are performed by this language.

To this immense library it is now necessary to add all the personal functions that one creates by own needs and that are then reused in other sites and all those exchanged or obtained in forums or specialized sites.

As can be seen, the possibilities that are presented to us are surprisingly vast. The only thing that is needed is a little desire to learn and some patience in our first steps. The result can be very satisfactory.
