Am I the only one.......
I was hoping someone else would have said about this in the questions section, so I thought I would add it myself, to let other know they are not the only one struggling :)
When I'm told about the functions I completely understand them and they make perfect sense, but trying to decipher them on PHP.net makes my head hurt and I just don't understand the way they are written!
Someone please tell me that it will get easier......
As a fellow sojourner through beginning PHP, I've experienced the same thing. My assumption is that the documentation is a reference for people who already know what they're doing, such as with much of the Mozilla references. I, too, have had difficulty understanding things by simply looking at the documentation.
So, it's not just you. I suspect most PHP newbies experience the same thing.
