RELEASED: IVWeather.class.php Version 1.10

Post by Giz »

This release addressed 3 areas:

-Error handling (much improved)
-Parsing of dates and allowing display of date and datetime relative to localized preference
-support for localization files and functions to display the $ivw->sky description and winddecode() in languages other than english. IVWeather.class.php 1.10 now in fact supports any number of these localization files. I currently provide an english and spanish version, although the spanish language version is provided only as an example, and was translated using babelfish. :roll:
-In order to support the possibility a site using the class may choose to have any number of localization files, the script has been altered so that the class and language files may be safely moved to a subdirectory seperate from the calling script(s).

//Quickstart

/* Your code should begin with this block. You can pass a url variable like $uvw or a literal string.
* For backwards compatibility with version 1.0 of the class, you can omit use of the localization block
* if you don't need that support.

Code: Select all

$ivw = new IVWeather($uvw);
if (!$ivw->err) {
   if ($localized)
      $ivw->loadLocalization($rlangwd, $rlangsky);
