Introduction to .NET languages, VS.NET and Extending VS.NET
Usage rating

In other sections previous to this, we have examined the runtime and the Common Type System. Essentially then, a .NET application can be thought of some code to manipulate these types and call methods in the Base Class Library, along with the application's logic. .NET compilers are of different types. .NET Consumers include compilers that let you do simple compilation of script code. On the other hand, .NET Extenders, let you take and extend existing Common Type System types. .NET language compilers do not compile your code directly to X86 (with the exception of one mode of the Visual C++.NET...

Why PHP?
Usage rating

If you are running on a UNIX or Linux platform, you have the choice between Perl and PHP, both excellent for scripting. Where PHP has the edge is in being much simpler for people new to writing scripts, making it more productive in the earlier stages. Perl also relies on having the correct modules downloaded from CPAN for some of the more off-beat functionality, whereas they come as part of the PHP distribution. Of course, there's no reason not have both Perl and PHP! On a Windows platform, there is competition from ASP and Cold Fusion. Here the choice can...

Advantages of PHP Over Java
Usage rating

PHP is an established server-side scripting language for creating dynamic Web pages. PHP was built with the needs of Web developers in mind... Unlike other cumbersome, overhead-laden approaches, PHP is lightweight and focused on the Web - where it can solve complex problem scenarios quicker and more easily than comparable technologies. Java began its life as a programming language and was initially aimed at running client-side applications inside of Web browsers. Over the last few years, the problems associated with these "applets," as they were known, has led Sun and many other Java developers to use the language in other...

PHP 4.0: Dynamic Content for the Web Warrior
Usage rating

PHP 4.0 is not a trivial upgrade to an existing product--it's a total re-write with backward compatibility to the 3.x technology. That's actually quite a feat, because they kept the compatibility with version 3.x while making some radical changes under the hood. First and foremost, the 3.x product was really an interpreted language, each line of code evaluated during the execution of the server side page. With version 4.0, the functional difference is actually quite staggering--the server actually compiles the code on the fly, and then executes the code, with dramatic improvements in speed, as you can guess. There's actually...

Viruses. What They Are, How They Get There and How to Protect Your System.
Usage rating

Guilty. With that word, on January 22, 1990, Robert 1. Morris Jr. became the first person to be convicted under a new federal law designed to protect computer systems from malicious break-ins and viruses. Morris was responsible for the "worm" unleashed November 2, 1988, on computers connected via the ARPANET electronic network. Thousands of computer systems locked up as the worm reproduced itself and spread to other computer systems. Indeed, the worm was so prolific that many systems were forced...

The release of PHP 4.0, the long-awaited, next generation of the popular Web scripting language, is just around the corner. The most recent version, release candidate 1, is stable and ready to take over PHP 3.0's role in Web application development. The release takes PHP to new levels, with increased performance, more features, and cleaner syntax. With over 1000 functions, there's no itch you can't scratch with PHP--even with the older 3.0 version. Indeed, PHP is the most popular Apache module according to an E-soft survey. Netcraft studies indicate its continuing growth, and that it was being used on over...
