Carved in mystic runes upon the very living rock, the last words of Fabian
of comp.lang.php make plain:

Lesson 1

<?php
echo "Hello World!";

Lesson 2

<?php
$variable= "Hello World!";
echo $ variable;
?>

Yes, I have tried google, and I have seen some possible results.
However, I am not knowledgeable enough about php to know the difference
between a good tutorial and a worthless tutorial. On the other hand, I
am wise enough to know that for every good online resource, there are
two worthless onces. I was hoping the people here would be able to tell
me how to avoid the dross. Sadly, at least in your case, you appear as
ill-informed as I am in the matter of discerning good php resources from
bad.

I started with this book

'PHP and MYSQL for Dummie by Janet Valade'

It's great, and not too expensive..

www.php.net would be the best place to start.

Maybe you need a book on spelling, and another on etiquette?

Woo, touchy, after I gave you two free lessons too.

Yes, online resources are variable. www.php.net is a definitive
resource but I would not recommend it for a newb. Trouble is, an
experienced PHP coder is unlikely to be evaluating newbie tutorials.

You need to avoid ones which assume register globals is on on the server
or that give notices when full error reporting is used. But if you are
a newb, this probably won't mean anything to you.

If you find something you like, post a link here and I'm sure someone
will evaluate it.

But the best thing is not to worry too much and just get coding.
