Why PHP is Efficient and Popular Scripting Language
PHP is very helpful to write code and create dynamic and interactive web pages, especially for large websites where putting all the code in the source document might be impractical thing to do. The support of the external file is supported by HTML and thus, many important codes could be saved in an external file and used anywhere in the document at the right place and for the required purpose.
PHP is generated because of the efforts of computer programmer Rasmus Lerdorf who worked with Perl scripts to see who visited the site and saw his resume on a personal homepage. Later he reworked and included functionality for working with web forms with support of databases and is known as PHP/FI version 1.0. Later more versions came out and today PHP 5 is in practice. The release date for PHP 6 is not known and is under development.
There is no limit to what you can achieve with PHP. All the aspects of the web designing and development can be easily implemented with the use of PHP. One can create web forms, functionality to the fields of the form, data checking and data analysis, connection to a database for fetching results, personalized information based on information from the clients’ browser.
With PHP framework, a certain work code can be established professionally. There is a general strategy employed to develop the code and their documentation process because for a certain framework, it is common among its users to follow programming etiquettes as per the development environment. This reduces time, effort required to develop different projects.
