Now, now... I don't feel like I'm betraying anyone by telling the truth. There are droves of PHP programmers and, more to the point, they all do web work because that's what PHP is really for.† Even if there were just as many Perl programmers we are split among application, systems, and web development. Admittedly, there is lots of overlap... but that's part of what makes us more expensive.
Yes, you can write standalone PHP scripts. No, no one does it. Not seriously anyway. I hope.
