View Full Version : PHP help

June 6th, 2009, 03:01 AM
I'm trying to convert a program that I wrote in Javascript over to PHP but I'm having some trouble. First here is the code:

function generateCode(){
$stringLen = strlen($thePassword);
$xCode = 0;
$asciiCode = 0;
for ($i=0;$i < $stringLen;$i++){
$eachChar = substr($thePassword,$i,1);
if (is_nan($eachChar)){
$asciiCode = ord($eachChar);
$xCode += ($asciiCode * 1024)*64*128*1024/512;
$xCode += ($eachChar * 1024)*64*128*1024/512;
print $xCode;
return false;

Please enter in the password:
<form method="post" name="theForm" onSubmit="generateCode()">
<input type="text" name="thePassword" size="" value="">

The program is quite simple. The user enters in a password and that password is turned into a number. Now when I run the program and type in a password and hit return, nothing happens. I've even put in prints that say stuff like "test" or "is this thing working?" but they don't print out either...

So what am I doing wrong?

Edit: Nevermind I figured out what I was doing wrong.
