  • PHP violates all reasonable engineering principles when designing a language, but its very crappiness is its genius -- when everything is a function, and all (most) of the functions are in the core language, then it's *really easy* to install -- and move -- web apps. I say move because I've written web apps in Perl and found them a bear to move from one web server to another, especially when moving from, say, a nice university server to a 10$/month web hosting one. With PHP, it's usually trivial -- download and upload. Set a few configs. Go.

    Now, what I don't understand is the Java-wannabe character of PHP 5. Who's following *that* Moses?
