For years, I have worked with PHP, this has included but is not limited
to back end scripting between systems (I find it more powerful than bash
scripting) and of course websites. Recent scripts and applications that
I have worked with that involve PHP are:
From what I have seen and used this class for, it can be helpful not
only for use within the scripting for a webpage, but also in making
shell or automatic scripts for use on a command prompt on a machine. I
realize that some people may think that it is overkill to have one's

the same language in common between all of them regardless of the type
of server that it is running on.

program called Quanta+, which is like Dreamweaver in some senses. That
program allows easy upload of the files as they are saved on to your
local computer, so it can be easy to keep the files current.
