PHP for Perl Programmers

Dr. Urban A. LeJeune

Track: PHP Conference
Date: Monday, July 23
Time: 8:45am - 12:15pm
Location: Fairbanks D

This tutorial focuses on transitioning the Perl programmer to PHP with the following four-part process:

1. What does PHP have that Perl does not?

2. What does Perl have that PHP does not?

3. What does PHP do differently than Perl?

4. What common traps do Perl programmers face when switching to PHP?

PHP is the only language that was designed specifically for Internet related applications. For most Web related applications, PHP is faster and in some cases substantially faster than Perl.

Perl programmers can obtain PHP programming parity with a relatively flat learning curve. Both Perl and PHP are procedurally oriented languages sharing a common heritage. In many ways PHP and C are closer relatives than Perl and C. Can't remember PHP syntax? Try the C or Perl equivalent and it works more times than not.
