Learning About PHP

GDT::PHP:: Source Code Examples

PHP is a popular server-side script programming language that is embedded in webpages. When a webpage containing PHP is fetched, the webserver executes the PHP code and replaces the PHP code with the output generated by the PHP code. PHP programs can also be written that can be executed as shell commands. PHP was created by Rasmus Lerdorf.
