random PHP functions

I’m still doing a fair amount of PHP work. Right now, it’s all Drupal, for a site we’re rolling out very soon. I keep stumbling across random PHP functions I hadn’t heard of before, and that turn out to be nice little time savers. Two examples:

  1. curl_setopt_array: I used to just call curl_setopt() a bunch of times to set all my options Now I can set a bunch of options in one fell swoop.
  2. http_build_query: Nothing I couldn’t previously do with simple string concatenation, but this is much cleaner.
