Advantages of PHP Programming

PHP (Hypertext Pre-Processor) is a server-side web programming language that is widely used for web development.
However, here are many languages which are used for web development or web programming. But among all of them PHP is the most popular web scripting language. So, let us find out why PHP is widely used for web development…

PHP language has its roots in C and C++. PHP syntax is most similar to C and C++ language syntax. So, programmers find it easy to learn and manipulate.

MySQL is used with PHP as back-end tool. MySQL is the popular online database and can be interfaced very well with PHP. Therefore, PHP and MySQL are excellent choice for webmasters looking to automate their web sites.

PHP can run on both UNIX and Windows servers.

PHP also has powerful output buffering that further increases over the output flow. PHP internally rearranges the buffer so that headers come before contents.

PHP is dynamic. PHP works in combination of HTML to display dynamic elements on the page. PHP only parses code within its delimiters, such as. Anything outside its delimiters is sent directly to the output and not parsed by PHP.

PHP can be used with a large number of relational database management systems, runs on all of the most popular web servers and is available for many different operating systems.

PHP5 a fully object oriented language and its platform independence and speed on Linux server helps to build large and complex web applications.

So, in general PHP is cheap, secure, fast and reliable for developing web applications.

    PHP Compared with other scripting languages :

    PHP Vs. ASP
    ASP is said to be a slower and more cumbersome language than PHP, less stable as well. The biggest drawback of ASP is that it’s a proprietary system that is natively used only on Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). The components built in ASP are really limited, so if you need to use “advanced” features like interacting with FTP servers, you need to buy additional components.

    PHP Vs. Coldfusion
    PHP runs on almost every platform there is; Cold Fusion is only available on Win32, Solaris, Linux and HP/UX. Cold Fusion has a good IDE and is generally easier to get started with, whereas PHP initially requires more programming knowledge. Cold Fusion is designed with non-programmers in mind, while PHP is focused on programmers. So, we expect the best programming with PHP.

    PHP Vs. Perl
    Perl is really hard to write code; actually PERL loses flexibility in coding and thus makes tough while editing the code. PHP has a less confusing and stricter format without losing flexibility. PHP is easier to integrate into existing HTML than Perl. PHP has pretty much all the ‘good’ functionality of Perl: constructs, syntax and so on, without making it as complicated as Perl can be. Perl is a very tried and true language, it’s been around since the late eighties, but PHP is maturing very quickly.
