PHP: Dancing with the cURL

HTTP Authentication with cURL in the event I’m overdrawn at the memory bank.

$ch = curl_init();
$url = "http://myurl.com/plah.php?foo=value";
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_ANY);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "user:pass");
curl_exec ($ch);
curl_close ($ch);

PHP: Locator script

When asked to write a store location program in less than an hour, I developed this little utility. It uses my own MySQL class and clean() function which parses the POST/GET variables for any nastiness that might have occurred.

include('includes/class.mysql.php');
include('includes/functions.php');

clean(); // Clean up $_REQUEST for SQL injection
$mysql = new mysql();
$zip = $_REQUEST[zip];
$city = $_REQUEST[city];
$digits = strlen($zip);
//echo "Count: $digits
"; echo "\n\n"; echo "\n"; while($i<1) { $q = ($zip) ? $mysql->query("SELECT * FROM stores WHERE zip LIKE '$zip%'") : $mysql->query("SELECT * FROM stores WHERE state = '$_REQUEST[state]' AND city LIKE '%$city%' ORDER BY zip ASC"); if(mysql_num_rows($q)) { while($r = mysql_fetch_assoc($q)) { echo "\t\n"; echo "\t\t".trim($r[chain])."\n"; echo "\t\t".trim($r[store])."\n"; echo "\t\t".trim($r[location])."\n"; echo "\t\t".trim($r[city])."\n"; echo "\t\t".trim($r[state])."\n"; echo "\t\t".trim($r[zip])."\n"; echo "\t\n"; } $i++; } else if (strlen($zip) > 1) { $zip = substr($zip, 0, strlen($zip) - 1); } else { $i = 1; } } echo "\n"; echo "\n";

PHP: transparent PNG over JPEG

<?php
header("Content-type: image/jpeg");
$im = imagecreatetruecolor(800,600); // main image output
$im2 = imagecreatefromjpeg('image1.jpg');
$im3 = imagecreatefrompng('../images/template3.png');

imagecopymerge($im,$im2,360,186,0,0,800,600,100);
imagecopy($im,$im3,0,0,0,0,800,600);

imagejpeg($im);
imagedestroy($im);
imagedestroy($im2);
imagedestroy($im3);
?>
