This book will cover all the most important tasks related to dealing with text/strings in PHP. The core of the book will look at PHP's built in string functions and the two flavours of Regular Expressions that PHP supports. String handling functions and Regular expressions basically solve many of the problems but in a very different way. This book won't just look at how to use them but when and where each is appropriate and what affect that choice has on performance.
String functions in PHP (obviously!)
How PHP internally handles strings
Performance of the various string handling options in PHP
Character sets (ASCII, Unicode, etc.)
