Converting ASP to PHP?

I was wondaring if PHP can do everything that ASP can? & does PHP have a "file system object" allowing you to alter and create files on the web server?

Hi..
You can do all the things you want to do with PHP. In fact sometimes programming in ASP could be very limiting. While PHP is a similar language but have a lot more features and flexibility. You have the option to convert your ASP scripts without doing everything from scratch again.

Firstly, php has many functions for the handling and creation of files, including manipluation of images. PHP doesn't really have a FileSystemObject like ASP, and it's more like C++: fopen, fclose, fputs, fgets, etc -- it's more of a laborous task to create, open, move files, etc but it's more fun.

Well said Giovanni, being a programmer i would have to say that PHP coding is better than ASP coding in numerous respects including the handling of classes, databases resources, etc, but that's a whole other subject. If there is an ASP->PHP convertor I wouldn't trust it -- you'd be better off learning PHP from scratch.
