PHP Scripts

Below is a zip file of various PHP scripts that I had written a long time ago. I found them again recently and decided to publish them in the hope that they might be of some use to somebody. There is very little documentation throughout the code, but most are only a few lines long so they are pretty self explanatory. I'm pretty sure most are horribly inefficient. I didn't really know much about that when writing them. The scripts were also written for a PHP4 host, so they either have clunky workarounds, or else backported PHP5 functions.
