Neehee. Een webapp scripting standaard. From http://www.securelevel.com/php.htm:
[quote:dda02a1d4e]PHP, one of the hottest scripting languages to be found on the Internet, lends a great many capabilities to the web programmer. Many of these tasks, accomplished with some degree of difficulty in many other languages, can be swiftly executed with but a few lines of PHP code. The fact that PHP code can be inserted directly alongside HTML makes the language all the more convenient.
Created by Rasmus Lerdorf in what began as a personal project (titled PHP/FI), the language quickly gained popularity and was almost completely rewritten by a group of six developers, and in turn, reborn as PHP. The language enjoys an extremely active developing environment.
Much of PHP is a combination of Perl, Java, and C concepts. The syntax structure borrows heavily from C, making it an easy language to learn for even the novice programmer. PHP performs sophisticated mathematical calculations, provides network information, offers mail and regular expression capabilities, and much more. PHP’s strongest feature is its database interfacing capability. Connecting a database to the Internet has never been so easy. What’s more, it supports many of the most popular database servers on the market, including MySQL, Oracle, Sybase, mSQL, Generic ODBC, and PostgreSQL, to name a few.[/quote:dda02a1d4e]
[quote:dda02a1d4e]In Web programming, PHP is a script language and interpreter that is freely available and used primarily on Linux Web servers. PHP, originally derived from Personal Home Page Tools, now stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, which the PHP FAQ describes as a “recursive acronym.”
PHP is an alternative to Microsoft’s Active Server Page (ASP) technology. As with ASP, the PHP script is embedded within a Web page along with its HTML. Before the page is sent to a user that has requested it, the Web server calls PHP to interpret and perform the operations called for in the PHP script.
An HTML page that includes a PHP script is typically given a file name suffix of “.php” “.php3,” or “.phtml”. Like ASP, PHP can be thought of as “dynamic HTML pages,” since content will vary based on the results of interpreting the script.
PHP is free and offered under an open source license. [/quote:dda02a1d4e]
