There are to many errors within code, especially for session, eregi, global variables and others. This some pieces step for compatibility porting:</p> <ol> <li><p>add global variable definiton on some function that need outside variable &lt;code&gt; function getuser(){ global $loginid,$password; } &lt;/code&gt;</p></li> <li><p>replace eregi(/find/,str) with preg_match(//,str)</p></li> <li><p>add function exists for function that not exists in php5.4.3. for example: &lt;code&gt; if(!function_exists("session_is_registered")){ function session_is_registered($var){ return isset($_SESSION[$var]); } } if(!function_exists("session_register")){ function session_register($var){ $_SESSION[$var]=$_GLOBALS[$var]; } } &lt;/code&gt;</p></li> </ol> <p>Ok there is my tips, how about you? </p> Benchmark (PHP) 2015-06-26T04:30:14-07:00Roger Mbiama Assogo <p style="color: grey"> PHP recipe 578235 by <a href="/recipes/users/4178746/">Roger Mbiama Assogo</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/perl/">perl</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/ppi/">ppi</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/scripts/">scripts</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/vim/">vim</a>).

Revision 2. </p> <p>In Ruby, the <a href="">Struct class</a> is a convenient way to create a hash-like object on the fly and use it for your nefarious purposes. PHP 5+ can be convinced to do this type of things as well, it just doesn't have it out of the box. Here is a simple class that implements iterator and allows you to populate the internal data structure similar to how Ruby's Struct works. Syntactic sugar? Probably.</p> <p>Note: I haven't bothered to implement the Ruby Struct API per se, Instead I just got something similar by implementing the Iterator interface and keeping things very PHP-like.</p> Generate an alpha-numeric password salt (PHP) 2010-02-25T14:07:08-08:00Jayesh Sheth <p style="color: grey"> PHP recipe 577071 by <a href="/recipes/users/4173165/">Jayesh Sheth</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/md5/">md5</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/password/">password</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/random_number/">random_number</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/salt/">salt</a>). </p> <p>Generate an alpha-numeric password salt (with a default of 32 characters)</p> Generate a salt (PHP) 2012-07-10T19:52:17-07:00Xavier L. <p style="color: grey"> PHP recipe 576894 by <a href="/recipes/users/4171602/">Xavier L.</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/crypt/">crypt</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/generation/">generation</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/generator/">generator</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/hash/">hash</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/pass/">pass</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/password/">password</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/salt/">salt</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/secure/">secure</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/security/">security</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/string/">string</a>). Revision 6. </p> <p>This function will generate a salt for use with passwords ranging using characters in range a to z, A to Z, 0 to 9 and !@#$%&amp;<em>?. The characters are sorted in a random value and can appear more than one time in the string. This way, this function is more powerful than the *shuffle()</em> function. This means that the salt could also be longer than the character list.</p> Hash text simply (PHP) 2012-04-30T21:43:00-07:00Xavier L. <p style="color: grey"> PHP recipe 576893 by <a href="/recipes/users/4171602/">Xavier L.</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/crypt/">crypt</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/extensible/">extensible</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/generator/">generator</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/hash/">hash</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/php/">php</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/secure/">secure</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/security/">security</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/simple/">simple</a>).
