PHP

PHP, the PHP Hypertext Preprocessor (it's recursive), is a relatively new language that integrates with the Apache Web server. Whereas Perl is a general-purpose programming language, PHP provides Web-specific functions that can speed up development time significantly.

Note

As you read this, the push is on to transition PHP into a programming language that can generate desktop software as well as dynamic Web applications. Given PHP's birth as a Web language, it's safe to say that it will retain its lead over Perl for developing online applications.
