Rafael Dohms has a new post to his blog today looking at using the Facebook PHP-SDK to run FQL queries on the data for your applications.

The new SDKs have not, as you can say, fallen far from the tree. While they are really great new and shiny, documentation on how to use them is still vague, missing or spread out in the internet in blogs like these, in posts from us users trying to share the information with other soon-to-be-suffering developers. So this is an example of this, i have been using these new resources and the new PHP-SDK and have ran into various walls, so I decided to start putting some of this on my blog, for 2 reasons: to spread the word, and to have notes for myself when I come back to this.

The post gives an example of using the "api" method provided by the PHP SDK from Facebook to push an array of parameters, one being the query, to the remote API for parsing. He includes the code for a simple (namespaced) helper to take in the query and return the API's return data set.
