in reply to What's wrong with re-inventing wheels
Re-inventing wheels IS wrong...
Wheels IS the CONCEPT.
Re-inventing the PROCESS for to make BEST wheels is the correct.
- Templating System for dynamic web pages
- Traditional solution
- Perl CGI scripts from server side, with modules for template systems.
- Re-inventing the solution: Rasmus Lerdorf, 1994
- Small set of Perl scripts, followed by a rewritten set of CGI binaries written in C in 1994 to display his résumé and to collect certain data, such as how much traffic his page was receiving. "Personal Home Page Tools" was publicly released on 8 June 1995 after Lerdorf combined it with his own Form Interpreter to create PHP.
We know the result...
