PHP : Java Glossary


PHP (Pre-Hypertext Processor) formerly PHP (Personal Home Page) is a server-side scripting language that ressembles Perl. It is opensource and free. It does many of the same things Microsoft ASP (Active Server Page) did, but faster and more flexibly. You can embed excecutable PHP code in your HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and it gets executed by the PHP HTML server. The PHP language has C-like for loops, associative arrays (arrays indexed by strings), hooks to easily extract data from HTML forms and smooth SQL (Standard Query Language) integration. PHP starts to fall apart for large projects because it lacks object oriented features. PHP-5 has object and classes. However, PHP was designed to be fast to type, not easy to maintain.
