1185. How to Take Advantage of PHP Resource Class in PHP 8.4 to Make PHP Applications Have Better Quality

Updated on: 2024-01-23

Posted on:

Since the first versions, PHP has used resource values to identify external resources like opened files, databases, and network connections.

The original way to access these resources was to use global functions that would take a resource identifier as a parameter.

Starting PHP 8.4, developers will be able to treat resources as objects.

Read this short to learn more about using objects to access external resources so you can prepare to update your PHP code when version 8.4 becomes available.

You do not need to do anything to make your current PHP application code work in PHP 8.4.

1184. How PHP DomDocument Class Will Be Improved in PHP 8.4 to Parse and Serialize Better HTML5 Documents

Updated on: 2024-01-05

Posted on:

Until PHP 8.3, PHP developers can use the DOMDocument class to parse HTML pages and files to process them helpfully for their PHP applications.

For instance, the DOMDocument can extract information from sites only available on the web pages.

Unfortunately, the DOMDocument class implementation is based on the LibXML2 library, which is only ready to parse HTML 4 documents.

Therefore, PHP 8.4 will be improved to use a new parser library that can process HTML5 pages and files to parse pages with types of elements only available in HTML5.

Most modern sites use HTML5 to generate their pages to take advantage of new HTML page elements not supported by HTML 4.

PHP 8.4 will be the next official version that PHP core developers will release, with improved features and better security protection.

Read this short article to see some PHP code and learn how to take advantage of this improvement of PHP 8.4 and when it will be available for you to use in your PHP applications.
