PHP:CSI Get Price In Pence

17th July 2020

I was looking at some malfunctioning code the other day where the price was pulled out of one API service and sent to another API. The problem stemmed from the fact that the value coming out of the first API was as a string and the second API required the price in pence as an integer.

The difference in formats here meant that the number had to be converted from one format to another. During this process it was found that the value was sometimes out by a single pence.

PHP:CSI - Random Increment Insert

26th January 2019

A while ago I was working on some changes to a website and came across a block of code that made me stare blankly at my screen. The website I was working on was a custom build website, created by another developer at the company I was working with at the time. I have never done a PHP:CSI on this site before but remember being so amazed at what I found at the time that I made a note of it for future reference. I have pondered recently how to approach the analysis of the code.
