What needs to be added

Functions, Classes

  • Make sure function name starts from letter (no _ before function names, private should be declared as private, php4 time is gone :).
  • Single empty line between functions and between function and code
  • Double empty line between classes


  • No hardcoded binary (security reasons)
  • No hardcoded serialised data (security reasons)


  • No closing php tag
  • No whitespaces at the end is required (currently it is just recommend)

Control statements

  • "case" multiline syntax:
   a = 25;
   b = 100;


case: a = 25; b = 100; break;

All above added to page 06/09/13
