Subject: [nycphp-talk] Looking for a good accountant for
1099/businessaccounts


Hello,
    Not exactly on topic, but I am looking for a good accountant to 
manage my 1099 contract taxes. Do you many of you guys have s-corps to
handle all your contracting jobs?

   Any recommendations?

This is not specific to the pcntl_fork question (which I can't answer), but
if you're ever testing whether a string is empty, try something like this:

print "Here's the string: --" . $the_string . "--";

If you get "----" as output, the string is empty.

Hey Chris, 

(Offtopic of fork( ), but in response to Chris)

Since you have double quotes, can't you just say
print "Here's the string: --$the_string--"; 

Also, I find it easy to do 
print "string($string)";

What's wrong with good old var_dump($myvar), which will tell you exactly
what's in the variable regardless of whether it is a string or not.

Yes, you absolutely can.  Just sometimes I randomly decide to use different
delimeters -- say, 'x' -- where doing everything inline will break things:

print "Here's the string: xx$the_stringxx";

won't work.  :)

Same idea.

Probably nothing.  But when I was an undergrad, the debugger for Turbo
Pascal sucked out loud, so I very quickly became accustomed to debugging
through output, and it's something I still do, in C++, Java, PHP, whatever.

Technically, var_dump is output.

You used Turbo Pascal too?  What a small industry it was back then.

Actually, I liked it's debugger ... the color highlighted code-stepping
was cool.

Was fun to see the variables change before your eyes while stepping
through code.
