Re: What is the meaning of Hypertext PreProcessor in PHP

PHP is an HTML-embedded Web scripting language. This means PHP code can be inserted into the HTML of a Web page. As long as the webserver supports it, PHP can be used to generate HTML pages by accessing a database. PHP code is executed on the server, and offers an alternative to CGI or SSI calls, or the use of languages such as ColdFusion. (PHP Hypertext Preprocessor) A scripting language used to create dynamic Web pages. PHP can also be used to connect to a database; to retrieve, add or update content. When a PHP page is accessed, the PHP code is read or "parsed" by the server the page resides on. This makes PHP an ideal language for creating large-scale websites.

Re: What is the meaning of Hypertext PreProcessor in PHP

Hypertext PreProcessor has no specific meaning but It is commonly used to extract data out of a database and present it on the Web page. PHP can also be used to connect to a database; to retrieve, add or update content. This makes PHP an ideal language for creating large-scale websites. The output from the PHP functions on the page are typically returned as HTML code, which can be read by the browser. NT/2000 and Unix Web servers support the language, and it is widely used with the mSQL database.

If you have more information or know of another definition for PHP, please let us know so that we can review it and add that information to our database. PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. Much of its syntax is borrowed from C, Java, and Perl, with the addition of a couple of unique PHP-specific features. Every attempt has been made to provide you with the correct acronym for PHP. If we missed the mark, we would greatly appreciate your help by entering the correct or alternate meaning in the box below.
