What is your favourite scripting language ?
Of those, C++, its fast and powerful, and not too hard (OK, maybe too hard). Although its worth it. So I choose C++.
I like them all, they all have great uses with different things.. PHP is great for server-side scripting, and C++ is a great language for apps and games.. even perl has great usage on unix environments for shell scripting...
I don't think these languages are comparable.. you shoulda asked for languages like ASP.Net, ASP, PHP, JSP, CGI, etc.. cuz they are all server-side scripting technologies and can be compared better..
Just my 0.02 cents!
I began learning Python yesterdy. It seems to be poweful.
Did anyone tri it out ?
PHP and C
Ahem...I think a lot of these topics have been raised before...
You can't compare!
php - serverside web language
c/cpp - programming language
java - programming language, can be embedded in to web
perl - terminal language (like DOS), can be used to control a remote computer via CGI
python - programming language
I'm not voting because i donư know much about those languages ;P
Java looks like this:
Just so you know!
Well as a language ignoring the diffrences between apples and oranges, I really like PHP. It is a really great language for web development [duh] and is fairly easy to learn.
Where should I look for a pretty thorough reference guide? Not looking for something light and superficial. I want the whole meal.
The official website would be a good place to start (php.net). I would go for php if we're talking about server side stuff as I can't be bothered with the fiddling with compiling and uploading for C and php is embedded and therefore you can have a big beast of an application running somewhere or/and little spirinkles elsewhere. Client side I prefer python. I don't know if you could really call c/cpp or java programming languages what with them being compiled and all.
My vote is for python. It is very flexible, allows for rapid development, and is near C speed. And if you need certain parts faster, you can write them in c/c++ and link it into your python program.
c and c++ is very good
but i think php is useful for making website
I use PHP, onyfor switch, includes and for the newssystem. But I learning MySQL so I can make my own scripts in the future
