p. We’ve talked about this before, but not recently. Quentin Zervaas has posted a nice tutorial on “how to use APC, PHP 5 and prototype.js to build a file upload progress bar”:http://www.phpriot.com/articles/php-ajax-file-uploads/1.

p. This is a very complete tutorial and is broken down into 10 pages, each containing a single concept. Here is a show quote form the intro.

bq. In this article we will develop a solution that will allow users to upload a file from their computer using HTML forms. We will then determine the progress of the upload while it is in progress using Ajax, and display the status to the user.

p. Quentin walk you through everything from installing APC to the JavaScript necessary to make things look pretty. All in all, it’s a great way to kill a morning if you want to look busy but avoid working.
