PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor

PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor
PHP is a server-side, cross-platform, HTML embedded scripting language. Much of its syntax is borrowed from C, Java and Perl with a couple of unique PHP-specific features thrown in. The goal of the language is to allow web developers to write dynamically generated pages quickly.
PHP script is embedded in an HTML document, allowing the web developer the freedom of not having to rely on extensive amounts of code to output HTML. PHP is server-side, i.e., executed on the server, so the client is unable to view the PHP code. Due to its cross-platform compatibility PHP is included in a large number of Web servers, primarily Apache Web Servers but still supported by the majority of Web Servers and by most operating systems. http://www.php.net/

Web Development With PHP FastTemplate
If you've worked with PHP, JSP, ASP or any other tag-based scripting language, you already know that one of the most powerful features of these languages is the ability to combine regular HTML code with programming constructs like variables and function calls. By substituting variable "placeholders" for actual content in an HTML page, these languages make it easy to construct dynamic Web pages; simply alter the values of the variables embedded within the HTML code, and the content displayed on the page changes appropriately.

UltraTemplate is a class that allows you to separate your code (PHP or ASP) from your html content. http://www.ultratemplate.com/

Building Successful Client/Server Applications
Today, over 80 percent of the applications running on a Microsoft Windows platform access data. More and more of these applications are used where the client/server architecture is not only recommended, but is a requirement. Unfortunately, most of these applications fail to succeed for a variety of reasons, including poor planning, design, and implementation. Here, we examine the most common mistakes, and discuss the benefits of using the Active Platform. Developers use the Active Platform so that client/server applications work seamlessly over the Internet, an intranet, or corporate network. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnwindev/html/msdn_bldcli~1.asp

Programming/C++ Tutorial by Paul Lutus
"This section of www.arachnoid.com is meant to introduce the topic of programming, but not provide a comprehensive education in the field � that takes years of effort and great dedication. By reading these pages, you will acquire a sense of what programming is about, an overview of the territory." http://www.arachnoid.com/cpptutor/

Cygwin Tools: (C/C++ Compiler)
The Cygwin tools are ports of the popular GNU development tools for Windows NT, 95, and 98. They run thanks to the Cygwin library which provides the UNIX system calls and environment these programs expect.

With these tools installed, it is possible to write Win32 console or GUI applications that make use of the standard Microsoft Win32 API and/or the Cygwin API. As a result, it is possible to easily port many significant Unix programs without the need for extensive changes to the source code. This includes configuring and building most of the available GNU software (including the packages included with the Cygwin development tools themselves). Even if the development tools are of little to no use to you, you may have interest in the many standard Unix utilities provided with the package. They can be used both from the bash shell (provided) or from the standard Windows command shell. http://sourceware.cygnus.com/cygwin/
