Operating System: Windows
PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. Much of its syntax is borrowed from C, Java and Perl with a couple of unique PHP-specific features thrown in. The goal of the language is to allow you to write dynamically generated pages quickly. It works by letting you place code that is executed on the Web server within HTML documents.
PHP provides a scalable, high-performance solution. It has all the tools you would expect from a programming language, such as for and while loops and math operators. It can handle variables, send HTTP headers, create graphics on the fly, set cookies, manage authentication, redirect users, and much more. It can even use OBDC to access Microsoft Access databases, Microsoft SQL servers, dBase databases, text files, and other data sources.
