PHP manual collation
August 28, 2004
Not to sound in the slightest bit ungrateful, because it’s a resource I use daily… but has the PHP documentation team utterly lost the ability to alphabetize in English? Take this baffling sequence: SOAP, SQLite, Shockwave Flash, SNMP, Socket — does that follow any pattern at all? Or how about this one: regular expressions (Perl-compatible), qtdom, regular expressions (POSIX Extended). Or printer functions coming after program execution functions. If it’s some kind of freaky i18n thing, I’d be interested to know.
