PHP

From LXF Wiki

A programming language that is becoming increasingly popular to use, due to its suitability for Web development. The name is a recursive acronym meaning 'PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor', although earlier versions were known as "Personal Home Page".

PHP is currently at version 5.1; learn more at [PHP's Home Website (http://www.php.net/)].
