CST336 Week 3

This week we covered a lot of PHP programming information, especially PHP arrays. I am enjoying learning about PHP, as their are many similarities with Perl. PHP is much more current skill than Perl, so should be quite useful in building web sites in the future.

For assignment 3 I built a simple MadLibs from www.bookish.com. The result can be viewed at http://hosting.otterlabs.org/lesterjohnj/assignments/assignment3.php with the code below:
