PHP Manual

The official php documentation “PHP Manual” is available in many formats. This manual consists primarily of a function reference, but also contains a language reference, explanations of some of PHP’s major features, and other supplemental information.


PHP, which stands for “PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor” is a widely-used Open Source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML. Its syntax draws upon C, Java, and Perl, and is easy to learn. The main goal of the language is to allow web developers to write dynamically generated web pages quickly, but you can do much more with PHP.
