The remarkable volume of information which has moved to the Web over the last few years, and the complexity of delivering it dynamically to Web users, have resulted in the increased popularity of programming languages designed specifically for delivery of Web content. PHP is similar to Microsoft Active Server Pages, Java Servlets and Cold Fusion Module but is commonly held to be much easier to program (or ‘script’) with, much faster than its competitors and, best of all, it is free to use and distribute.
