|PHP is an server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language. It is specifically tailored to allow Web developers to write dynamically-generated pages quickly and easily, and accomplish common tasks like forms processing with a minimum of effort. Although much of its syntax is borrowed from other languages like C, Java, and Perl, it is one of the most approachable scripting languages around.|
