    PHP is a great language for someone developing a final year project or the likes.... its not a bad language and its really easy to learn in a short ammount of time given the ammount of support and pre-written scripts out there. Im currently learning RoR. Its a million miles from PHP but from what ive done so far its just so productive. what takes 100 lines in PHP takes just 10 in RoR.... A really productive language.

    A final year project?! Eep.

    And I just can't see it as a good language to learn to program in. Worse than basic.

    XHTML is not a programming language, so should probably not be in that list.

    Kae - I know. Maybe I should have used a different term, but if I hadn't included it ....

    true. maybe "None - (X)HTML is good enough without screwing around"?

    Ruby seems ok (only started), still (so far) not as good as PHP.

    Are we classing HTML and XHTML as a programming language these days guys?

    Pretty much 100% php myself, speed and ease of building and maintanence is the real reason.

    These days? I wasn't aware that the definition had changed recently. :)

    (They're not programming languages, of course, and never have been.)

    Well, there is a difference between markup and programming. ;)

    Anyway, mostly PHP, but am venturing into RoR lately. It's interesting, but the learning curve, IMO, is still steeper than PHP. Maybe I'm just getting old.

    Do you have any examples of RoR work you have done?

    Web programming or programming? TCL, C, Perl, Java, PHP, some ASP, and I know I had a book on Python around here somewhere. Also tried VBasic but it gave me a headache without the preliminary sense of intoxication. :)

    Just noticed that the site in your sig (findmeatune.com) seems to use PHP. Why didn't you use Python? :)

    Formely I used to apply Perl in my programming.
    I move to php as soon as I realize that php is incorporating almost perl feature.

    I use PHP for just about anything but now I'm learning C++ when I get time.
    Hopefully soon enough I'll be able to create PHP extensions and Apache modules for intensive web-apps that need a burst of speed.

    Are you already familiar with the existing modules and addons that speed up / cache php?
  19. daviddoran

    daviddoran New Member

    Yes, some of them give a huge boost to memory usage and speed.
    What I was thinking of is for instance if part of your app had to search for files, or join lots of files together then I could create an extension and have a function join_files( array() ); or something to that effect so the "heavy lifting" would be done by the C/C++ code.
