    Hmm, shouldn't the definitive reference be:

    http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/F/foo.html

    And really, you should read the entry on

    if ($foo==$bar) {
        
         for ($baz=0; $baz<$qux; $baz++) {

              $quux=$baz;
              if ($garply['quux']==$waldo) {

                   echo $thud;
              }
         }
