PHP scripting

PHP is a web based scripting language that I like to use for my web sites. Why? because it is powerful and fairly simple to use.

A tiny little example is this: http://www.geekzone.com.au/index.php?about_us
This page currently (2004) lists the fact Jase & I have 21 years of experience, but that number is correct, even though the page hasn’t been updated in 2 years.. Why? a piece of PHP code that says: $experience = ((date (“”Y””) – 1997)*2)+7:: meaning we’ve both been in the industry since 1997, plus I have been for 7 years before that. Simple bit of code, took 15 minutes to develop, means that page never needs changing..
