Re: [gerble1000] is php a form of perl

Perl and PHP have a relatively similar syntax, because both have their basic syntax derived from the C language syntax (and to a lesser extent from the Unix shell syntax).

I really don't think it can be said that PHP is derived from Perl, but is is quite possible that some of the Perl constructs have been reused in PHP.

To tell the truth, the very first version of PHP (back in 1995) was actully a collection of Perl scripts. But current versions pf PHP have very little in common with those early attempts.
