I think it would be a good idea to get a list of sites going that have good php and cgi scripts. I only use one right now www.hotscripts.com but i would like to know what other people use. lets try and make a list...

Matt's script archive is fairly minimal, but is actually all I have ever needed.

Ack! MSA scripts are notoriously full of security holes.
It's probably got more to do with people setting them up and never changing the default passwds, etc. I don't endorse the MSA.

I never thought of that. I am using those kind of scripts right now to help me learn php/mySQL. Thats a good thought to keep in mind though.

A lot of people do that. Hell, I've heard more than one around here say they learned Perl by hacking UBB. Now UBB (this version--haven't tried the new one) is some of the most poorly written, stylistically offensive Perl I've ever had the displeasure to parse. (linear spits for emphasis.)

I feel sorry for the people who are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the authors of UBB.

The cure:
For CGI, read the documentation for CGI.pm. If you're not using CGI.pm in your Perl scripts, you need to be. It's in the core Perl distribution now, so you really don't have an excuse not to. Go buy _Effective Perl Programming_ ,by Joseph Hall and Randal Schwartz.

For PHP, I wish there were more things available. You could try this. Most people's PHP mistakes are database mistakes. People handle errors incorrectly if at all, and leak tons of sensitive information when they do.

I'm not a really big fan of CGI.pm library. It has a lot of unnecessary stuff (I especially don't need it's HTML output capabilities), so I use CGI::Minimal instead.

Sorry; to clarify, I meant "If you're parsing URLs yourself and not using someone's library you should get a well-tested, well-designed library to do it for you."

I prefer CGI.pm because Lincoln Stein is one hell of a smart guy.
