==What is PHP Tables?==

PHP Tables is a set of PHP classes used to manage tabular data in a data-oriented fashion, and output it as HTML.

==What license is PHP Tables released under?==

PHP Tables is made available under the GNU Lesser General Public License. The terms of this license are contained within the accompanying files COPYING (for the basic GNU General Public License) and COPYING.LESSER (for the additional permissions granted by the Lesser GPL).

This means, essentially, that if you wish to modify or derive from PHP Tables and release this direct derivative, you should probably release it under the GPL or LGPL. However, if you merely make use of it in a larger product, you are more free in your choice of license.

==How do I use PHP Tables?==

Good question. There will be documentation soon, I promise, starting with some simple examples.

==I think I can make this better. What should I do?==

Well, this is open source, so you are completely free to edit the classes to create your own local version, and you're free to distribute it as long as you use a suitable license.

However, if you want to improve this "official" version, then submit a patch to me. The patch should be in unidiff (diff -u) format, or submit the complete function(s) or source file(s) you've changed, along with a description of what you've changed and why.

You can get these to me by emailing me - see the AUTHORS file for details.

==What other information is there?==

Please read the accompanying changelog and TODO files to see what features have been added to PHP Tables, and what features are intended for the future.
