The rankin project is a small app that demonstrates MySQL table listing, inserting, modifying & deleting of records. It is intended for PHP / MySQL newbies who would like to see how some of this stuff is done. Project is not object oriented - rather top down methodology to keep all modules easy to understand (maybe a little redundant - but easy to following and heavily commented).
for a demo then if you would like a copy of the project just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will send you a zip copy of the project - free.
Best wishes and good luck.
