Hi folks!
I got a little problem with my assignment.
The idea is to create online bookstore.
As far didn't have much troubles with the project, until now.
Problem occures when I'm trying to update/delete an entry to mySql.

if you take a look at line 93 - there is 3times equal mark, in this case update works nice, but while I'm trying to delete entry - typing 0
, than only quantity is removed form sql(equals to 0), but if you remove "=" than no metter what you type in, whole entry is been removed form sql - it should do this only after typing 0.

Hope you might help me,
many thanks in advance!

code goes here:

<?php
session_start();?>
<?php
if (isset($_REQUEST["update"])) // add was clicked
   {
    update_cart();
    display_output_page();
    }
       else
       {
          display_output_page();
        }
  function display_output_page()
   {
?>
<html>
<head><title>Displaying the book database table using PHP</title></head>
<h1>YOUR CATALOG</h1>
<p style ="margin-left: 42em"><a href = "books.php">[ Home</a> | <a href = "tisa.php"> Shopping Cart</a>

3 equals checks that the 2 variables have the same value AND type(strict)
2 equals just checks that the value matches(loose)

data coming from post and get vars come in a a string eg.

page.php?quantity=1

<?php
if($_GET['quantity'] == 1){
    echo 'loose match: integar 1<br/>';
}
if($_GET['quantity'] === 1){
    echo 'strict match: integar 1<br/>';
}
if($_GET['quantity'] == '1'){
    echo 'loose match: string "1"<br/>';
}
if($_GET['quantity'] === '1'){
    echo 'strict match: string "1"<br/>';
}
?>

Dont use the $_GET statement in Biiim statment, use $_POST. The only time you use GET statement, is if you are submitting your form using a url. in this case you would need to have the form method="GET", but your using method="POST"
