    I am starting to write some scripts. Now should I wait until PHP4 documentation and tutorials arise and write in PHP4, or should I just do everything in PHP3? I have a book on PHP3 and I want to know if the language has changed enough to make this book invalid. Thanks. Any clear input is appreciated.

    The actual language hasn't changed that much from PHP3 to PHP4, some functions have been added, but most are backwards compatiable, so your PHP3 book should work with PHP4.
