"PHP is a free scripting language running on over 700,000 Web
sites, and PHP's rapid ascent is reflected in its steadfast
presence at the top of oreilly.com's search logs over the past
year. An open-source, cross-platform alternative to Microsoft's
Active Server Pages (ASP) technology, PHP scripts are embedded
within a Web page along with HTML."
"Who better to talk to about PHP than its creator, Rasmus
Lerdorf? oreilly.com recently checked in with Lerdorf for the
latest word on PHP...."
What's the story behind PHP's creation?"
Back in 1995 I created a number of simple scripts to spruce up
my personal Web page a bit. I packaged these tools into a package I
called the Personal Home Page Tools. They were based on a
simple cgi wrapper that did custom-logging and some simple macro
replacements in the pages it served up."
