Random PHP stuff

Here's some random PHP stuff I stumbled upon:

I had this idea while extracting some data from a website. As I realized that the algorithms and functions to extract links and other tags are often the same - I had the idea to combine all functions to an universal usable class. While drinking a coffee and thinking on that problem, I thought it would be cool to access HTML elements by using SQL. So I started creating this class... SELECT href, title FROM a WHERE $class == 'list'

PHP "raycaster" 3D renderer
I mentioned recently that I was looking for an interesting PHP project. This evening I remembered an idea I had a while ago to make a 3D renderer in PHP (and if anyone's tempted to ask - "because I can" ). I did a bit of reading on old 3D engines, as I didn't want something modern and slow, and found out that the "raycaster" rendering used in Wolfenstein 3D is ridiculously easy to implement. A few hours later and it's up and running
