Where to find php 5.2.6 manual?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

I'm frustrated past my wit's end.  The distribution I'm using (Ubuntu
9.04) only has packages up to php 5.2.6.  I'm fine with that, except
that I can only find the manual on php's web site for the latest

Can anyone help me by pointing to where I can get a copy of the 5.2.6
manual?  They've changed a lot of the functions I need to use, and the
new version of the manual is practically useless.

Thanks in advance for any help!

There's only one manual, that roughly covers all versions from PHP 3.
Most pages have a "Changelog" table where you can learn when a function
become available or was changed.

What functions have changed so much from 5.2.6 to 5.3?

AFAIK there is only one manual: www.php.net
For every function or other piece of information you can find notes if
there is some issue with some version of PHP.

for example: fopen():
- Above you see PHP4, PHP5, meaning this function exists in all PHP 4
and 5 versions.
- If you read down a little to 'context':
Note: Context support was added with PHP 5.0.0. For a description of
contexts, refer to Stream Functions.

You can find these kind of notes everywhere in the manual.

There is no specific manual for a given version number of PHP, except
the current one as far as I know.  The manual does tell you what
functions are available in what versions of PHP though.

For example:


You'll see this at the top of the page:


(PHP 4 >=3D 4.3.0, PHP 5)

This mean that this function is available from version 4.3.0 of PHP
