Another great site with PHP tutorials... but uhh... it's sort of hosted on an Adult site, don't worry, it's not a porn site... it just links to porn sites... so as long as you don't click any of the links not leading to a PHP tutorial, you should be right.

I'd like to thank you Jeku, you partially gave me the idea for DBLinks.

Anyway, http://www.knova.malinko.net is DBLinks. It is basically a place where you can view and store useful programming links.

I've only done sockets programming in it for IDS purposes but am partial to the perl programming language (ActivePerl specifically).

Is an interpreted language by default but can be compiled to a unix or windows binary via perl2exe. Is CLI by default but combined with Tk (Perl\Tk) it can provide a robust GUI as well. All very free, very opensource.

Quote: "asp?"


Essentially Microsofts response to 'PHP', however, it's considerably useless to most people as the majority of web servers are hosted on Unix systems. However, many organisations have their own dedicated servers that run Windows Server and so ASP is a major development language for them. ASP itself, is a server-side scripting language that uses either JScript or VBScript to mainpulate data and then output it in the form of a webpage that the user views, it's basically just like PHP, the main difference between the two is that ASP has a VB-like syntax while PHP is closer to C++.

Unless you're referring to ASP.NET, which can be used with C#, a C-Scripted language, and the holy grail of all that is web development. I am almost a true convert from PHP to ASP.NET... it's just the server price is too expensive! You sure can't beat PHP's *free* price.
