Im basicly new to PHP3 programming, and was wondering if anyone could recommend any good books or Online Doc's aimed at the newbie. I've tried reading some of the online docs, but just when i think i understand it, It takes off into stuff i know nothing about. Thnx in advance

Have you tried www.php.net? The online documentation there is very good! I was new to PHP3 too a few months ago but now - thanks to that documentation - I'm able to write pretty advanced scripts!

Core php programming by Leon Atkinson is ok, it has some good examples and is pretty easy to follow. I use it in conjunction with the online manual at www.php.net. I found when I started that comments like
string nl2br(string string); (from the manual) didnt really tell how or where I should use it, but Core php gave the example etc etc I think you get my point
also try www.phpbuilder.com, they have a couple of books on there
