"PHP (PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor)"
|56||Error in Binary
under the sentence "Add zeros to the left-hand side...."
the binary readout:
|67||Error in Text
for the "Or" Logical Operator. In the "In English" statement, the "x is equal to 5, and y is equal to 5." Should be: In the "In English" statement, the "x is equal to 6, or y is equal to 5."
|94||Wrong File Path
It is shown that the two cfg files should be saved in:
The compiler will not work if they are saved there. It cannot find the include files. You need to save the files in
|133||This page has duplicate sections
There is a listing twice on the page and the code is repeated as well. It begins with "That's simple".
|167-168||Incorrect ASCII values
In the ASCII table the characters corresponding to some of the ASCII values are incorrect. The correct values are:
|177-178||Answer for code sample 6
The provided downloadable answers do not include an answer for code sample 6, only questions 1 to 5:
1 - 13
2 - 10
3 - No
4 - Yes
5 - An integer greater than 14
So...the answer for Q6 on page 178 should be:
6 - An integer greater than 12
|204||Error in Text
error the phrase "The answer is" doesn't exist in the code
|204||Text Error in Code
cout << "Tempperature Converter" << endl;
cout << "Temperature Converter" << endl;
|205||Hightlight New Line
cout << "Enter conversion type." << endl;
This line of code should be highlighted because it is also new as the two below it.
