Once a week I have to deal with a zombie process or try to start a process that’s already running on its designated port. In most cases I use macOS’s Activity Monitor to kill the process, which is time-consuming. What if we could just kill a process on a given port from command line? Well, […] The post Terminate Process on a Port from Command Line appeared first on David Walsh Blog.
Sameer Borate has a new post to his Code Deisel blog showing how to unpack binary data in PHP making use of the pack and unpack functions. Working with binary files in PHP is rarely a requirement. However when needed the PHP 'pack' and 'unpack' functions can help you tremendously. To set the stage we will start with a programming problem, this will keep the discussion anchored to a relevant context. The problem is this : We want to write a function that takes a image file as an argument and tells us whether the file is a GIF image; irrelevant with whatever the extension the file may have. We are not to use any GD library functions. He starts by briefly covering the "metadata" that binary files contain in their headers about the type of file and, more specifically, what the content for a GIF looks like. He follows this with an example of using unpack to provide a readable version of the file's binary content. He then uses this in an is_gif function to read the contents of a file, check the header format and ensure the version is either GIF87a or GIF89a. He also includes the code for another method to get attributes about the file like height, width and the aspect ratio. He ends the post with more details on the contents of the header and what each character means.

On the Laravel News site there's a new post covering a refactoring of view handling that's possible with recent versions of the framework: using view components instead of view composers.. In software development, one of the "best practices" is to create reusable code that can be implemented in different parts of your application if needed. [...] View composers allow you to move the logic outside your controller and pass the data to the specified set of views. [Using view components instead of composers lets you] reuse complex components using dynamic data on any view within your application. To help illustrate the difference they set up a scenario of a blog with a "highlights" sidebar based on data from an API response. With view composers you could extract this logic out of the controllers and add it more automatically to the view itself. They point out that this can work for a majority of the situations there's another method that is even more flexible: a reusable component implemented directly on the view. He provides the complete code showing an examples of this components, including a custom Blade directive.
