Wow ... something new ...

[ #12263 ]
This might be old news for other people, but I was quite surprised to learn ...

PHP started as a quick Perl hack written by Rasmus Lerdorf in late 1994. Over the next two to three years, it evolved into what we today know as PHP/FI 2.0. PHP/FI started to get a lot of users, but things didn't start flying until Zeev Suraski and Andi Gutmans suddenly came along with a new parser in the summer of 1997, leading to PHP 3.0. PHP 3.0 defined the syntax and semantics used in both versions 3 and 4.

    Pretty cool eh? I discovered this when I was researching the history of PHP for my article [] in the Perl Review. Speaking of TPR, it looks like it has lost it's momentum after brian d foy went over to Iraq. Hopefully it will get back going when he returns. I don't know how he manages to still get published while over there though!
