A set of string manipulation components use fewer CPU cycles than formatters in other C++ libraries, DeLong boasted.
Beginning with an overview of R and how to set up and run the application, the work covers topics such as data structures, vectors, matrices and arrays, lists, data frames, math and simulations in R, object oriented programming, inputs and outputs, string manipulation, graphics, and debugging finished programs.
Topics addressed include numerics, string manipulation, graphics, symbolic math, calculus, parallel processing, interfacing, and debugging.
It details all of the latest technologies available in PHP 5, such as SimpleXML and SQLite, and covers such topics as object-oriented PHP, networking, string manipulation, file manipulation, database interaction, multimedia creation, and mathematics.
The book also covers networking, object-oriented PHP, file and string manipulation, multimedia creation, mathematics and database interaction.
This isn't to say that it's reasonable to use XML for everything (e.g., typing math expressions into our spreadsheet), but for the common types of information that we exchange on the Net, we should no longer have to write parsers that deal with basic syntax and string manipulation. In conjunction with document verifying components (DTDs or XML Schema), much of the complex error checking is also done automatically.
They also provide functionality such as date and sophisticated string manipulation, as well as all the math functions (trigonometric and logarithmic) needed for astronomical computations.
Cobol, the question takes the more specific form: "Can't class libraries make up for the lack of such things as fixed-length string manipulation and file-handling capabilities?"
The book begins with an overview of PHP's capabilities, then covers PHP concepts, such as variables, datatypes, string manipulation, and user interaction.
The authors explain PHP functions and arrays, SQL commands, forms, the Pear collection of reusable PHP components, string manipulation, cookies and sessions, access control, web site security, data validation, and an example blog application.
