Is there a way to check weather a variable contains serialized
data or not, as we hve some functions like
( is_ double,is_ float) to check the integer and float value.

Very messy, but I have to admit I've used it:

function is_serialized($ var){
$check = @unserialize($v ar);
return ($check===false && $var != serialize(false )) ? false : true;

Our current intranet site displays the weather with a 7 day forecast. We have to manually enter all the weather info into a SQL DB using a web front end, but would like to use an RSS feed. All of the feeds I've found on the web are only 2-3 day forecast. Does anyone know if there are any RSS weather feeds with a 7 day forecast? Or any alternative solution? Thanks.
