Aren't we done YET? - PHP

PHPLIB templates can grant you an amazing ability to abstract the manipulation of data (in the database as well as in PHP) from its final format, whether that format is HTML, XML, WML, or a formatted e-mail, and some of these ways will be explored here.

There's one last detail that I'd like to reinforce that I mentioned earlier.

Within the PHPLIB all variables are equal, even if they aren't created the same way. This is true of variables defined with set_file, set_var, or set_block!

To demonstrate this, let's take a look at four.ihtml:

<!-- BEGIN BlockOne --> "I want to know what you think!" <!-- END BlockOne --> ... so the wife says to her husband, {statement}.

and run this with the following code:

<? $T->set_file('input_four', 'four.ihtml'); $T->set_block('BlockOne', 'BOne'); $T->parse('statement', 'BlockOne'); $T->set_var('BOne', ''); $T->pparse('Output', 'input_four'); ?>

You'll note that the block of text gets put in the right place! Also note this line:

$T->set_var('BOne', '');

which clears out the BOne variable. This may or may not be necessary depending on how you have PHPLIB configured to run by default.
