    PHP Cookbook (2nd Edition) 

    PHP_Cookbook2I find most technical books impossible to read from front to back. I typically just use them as reference books. Unfortuanately most techbooks aren’t organized with this in mind. That’s why I love the cookbook series. They tend to contain far more example code then typical programming books and are ideal reference books. The PHP Cookbook is an excellent resouce for PHP novices and experts alike. PHP Cookbook (2nd Edition) is exactly what you would expect from a O’Reilly’s cookbook. Everyone reguardless of skill level will feel they hit the jackpot with this book because it has tons of sample code and examples that explain how to do just about anything imaginable in PHP.

    XCode PackageMaker Tutorial 

    packagemaker.jpg I’ve never been satisfied with Fink or Darwin Ports on OS X. So I’m always compiling things from source. This would be fine if I only had to do this once or twice, but I unfortunately I’ve installed PHP and all of it’s dependencies on more computers than I can count. Along with several other handy utilities like wget.

    This tutorial assumes that your package is built using gcc and autotools.

    1. Configure your application:
    This step is extremely important. When you configure the source make sure you add the ‘–prefix’ argument. This path should point to where you want the binaries to be installed temporarily for packaging. I use build everything to the ./export directory, but this could be what ever you choose.

    ./configure –prefix=<package-dir>/export

    Don’t forget to add the other configure options that you wish to use. For a complete list of the configure options for that package type ./configure –help

    2. Build your application:
    If you have configured your source correctly there’s not much to this step. Just type

    make install

    and wait for it to finish
