PHP: Links, News and Resources (1)

Filed under: Links, PHP, Programming Languages, Web Development — ajlopez @ 9:27 am

I did a lot of programming with PHP for years. These are some of the recent links I collected:

PHP is a general-purpose server-side scripting language originally designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages. For this purpose, PHP code is embedded into the HTML source document and interpreted by a web server with a PHP processor module, which generates the web page document. It also has evolved to include a command-line interface capability and can be used in standalone graphical applications.[2] PHP can be deployed on most web servers and as a standalone interpreter, on almost every operating system and platform free of charge.[3] There is also commercial software such as RadPHP, arapid application development framework for the PHP language. A competitor to Microsoft‘sActive Server Pages (ASP) server-side script engine[4] and similar languages, PHP is installed on more than 20 million websites and 1 million web servers.[5]

PHP was originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1995. The main implementation of PHP is now produced by The PHP Group and serves as the de facto standard for PHP as there is noformal specification.[6] PHP is free software released under the PHP License which is incompatible with the GNU General Public License (GPL) due to restrictions on the usage of the term PHP.[7]

While PHP originally stood for "Personal Home Page", it is now said to stand for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor", a recursive acronym.[8]
