I agree with some points dirkfirst makes that PHP does Suck however I think that overall it is the best web scripting language.

The one point I do agree is the naming convention. Why didn't they use a standard? lol.......

This is the first time I've ever encountered someone who is unliking of PHP. I've only heard praise before this, but you seem to know what you're talking about.

I'm a newb at PHP and I love it.

Kaabi, I don't think he does. He is always asking questions in the PHP forum.

Agreed. Java is application/client side while PHP is server side. How can you compare the two?


Java is server side!
I think you are mixing it up with javascript..

True, while my comparison against Java may not be valid it still sucks. Read the other flaws! You ever seen a language that appears to not even be thought out? It looks like they threw three monkeys in a room and made them develop PHP randomly.

But so many people like PHP, and it's the most popular web development language on the Internet; well, next to HTML. I think it's a good language, from what I know about it.

It is most popular because its free! And runs on linux for free.
Otherwise I think asp.net would be ALOT more popular but ppl cant afford Windows servers.

ASP is a lot harder to use as well. While I look at PHP as a scripting language I see ASP as a language.

PHP is very effective dirkfirst. If you know how to use it there are all kinds of things you can do with it.

What do you mean it's free? Aren't all programming languages free? Oh yeah, I think ColdFusion costs money. That's stupid, having to pay for a programming language, but I forget if it actually does cost money.
