PHP is a tag based programming language that technogeeks embed in their webpages to make them do fancy things. Mostly it's used to pull information out of databases so that it can be displayed in the web page. I just wrote some PHP for a web page I've been putting together for my mother. PHP looks nothing like c (the computer language I am most fluent in), but has very c-like function names (built-in bits of code). As much as it was very familiar, it actually made the task harder for me as I wasn't expecting it. People don't like c ... but I guess programmers do, at least programmers who make new programming languages.
