"PHP is a great embedded programming language for the Internet.
Using PHP you can do a great deal of things such as:
Run system commands
Perform file I/O
Create dynamic images
"It's very powerful C-like language and is very easy to understand
if you have any programming background. You could compare PHP with
the likes of ColdFusion and ASP. Although, I feel that PHP has much
more functionality and flexibility. Oh, it's free too."
"This NHF is aimed at newbies with moderate Linux
experience. You need to understand how to move around your
filesystem, perform basic file operations, and compile/install
programs. If you don't, I strongly suggest you read some of
the other NHF's aimed at fresh newbies and come back to this."
