Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Retrieving a year's data a day at a time, part of Code Clinic: PHP.
…I've open get underscore individual underscore files.php which you…can find in the 01_09 folder of the exercise files.…It's got some basic code for resetting max execution time.…For calculating how long the script takes and connecting to the database.…Let's add some code to bring the database up to date.…We'll add some more space at the top here, just before the try block.…Then require once.…We need to include the class definition, so that's Foundationphp/PendOreille.…
Slash OneDay.php.…Next, we can import the class with the use operator.…So it's Foundationphp\PendOreille\\OneDay.…This imports the class.…It doesn't actually include the class definition.…That's done by the require one statement.…What importing means is that it allows to refer a namespace class…by its class name rather than needing to use the fully qualified name.…
Now, we need to get the data for the rest of May, 2010.…So inside the tri-block, create a variable for the month.…So we'll create a new line after table.…Month and the month will be 5.…
David introduces challenges and provides an overview of his solutions in PHP. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.
Visit other courses in the series to see how to solve the exact same challenges in languages like C#, C++, Java, Python, and Ruby.

Q: I'm encountering script errors message with the prime_dates.php file used in the "Priming the date_record column" movie in this course. How can I resolve these errors?

bindParam(), check out the "Binding input and output values" video (http://www.lynda.com/PHP-
