PHP only works (and badly in my opinion) within the realm of dynamic web-site programming.

While I would not disagree with the sentiment, in the interests of accuracy it should be pointed out that PHP scripts can be run on the command line. You still have to wrap the stupid <?PHP ... ?> tags around the code, but aside from that it will run given #!, permissions, PATH, etc. Its a bit of a pig to do that on Windows, but even that is possible.
It is true to say that PHP is rairly used anyware except on the web. The people who use PHP rather let it down as well - poor coding practice is rife.

It might be worth pointing out that Perl on Rails being done by the Beeb href http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/radiolabs/2007/11/perl_on_rails.shtml

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
