Basic PHP

PHP stands for Personal Home Page. It was first developed in the early 1990s as a quick, lightweight scripting language for building dynamic Web pages. The inventors of the lan–guage originally modeled PHP on Perl and C, so programmers familiar with these languages will have absolutely no problem with PHP.

In this section of the chapter, I'll discuss basic syntax, variables, arrays, expressions and operators, and control structures. By the end of this section, you'll have the basics down, and that will give you enough background for the sections that follow, which discuss creating custom functions and working with MySQL.
