PHP functions reminder

Le mercredi, avril 10th, 2013

I love PHP, but when it comes to consistency, it sucks very very very hard. I’m tired of going to the (very very good) php.net site to check functions arguments and order and such, so now, all what I usually check will be here. Nothing here is « complete ». My goal isn’t to make a doc, […]

While making Geek’s World, I often change the text at the last moment. As a result, the content of the .psd file was more accurate than the text in the database. Plus, I also used to translate from English to French directly in photoshop. And as I want to display the text on my webpage […]

Convert HTML into BBcode

Displaying a progress bar

Le dimanche, mars 1st, 2009

Ok, it’s not really a bar. Draw something, being careful of the width of your command-line terminal, is tricky. But, you’ll get the display of the percentage of progress of the script and the time that is probably remaining. Example. You have a script doing 20,000 times about the same thing. You want to know […]

Be careful, this is the translation of two French articles and it’s long. Today we will be writing time in a way that is comfortable for a human reader. Who want to read, « Only 0h 00mn 18s left » at the end of a count that began an hour ago? Before, strftime() was enough. Now, time […]
