A complete introduction of C, C++, PHP & HTML language.
C is a general-purpose & high-level programming language that is ideal for portable applications & developing firmware. Originally intended for writing system software, the C was developed for the Unix Operating System in the early 1970s at Bell Labs by Dennis Ritchie.
Ranked among the most widely used languages, C has a compiler for the most computer systems & has influenced many popular languages, notably C++.
C ++ Language:
C++ is a general-purpose OOP (object-oriented programming) language, developed by Mr. Bjarne Stroustrup, & is an extension of the C language. It is, therefore, possible to code C++ in the “C style” or “object-oriented style.” In certain scenarios, it can be coded in either way & is thus an effective example of a hybrid language.
C++ is considered to be the intermediate-level language, as it encapsulates both high & low-level language features. Initially, the language was called “C with classes” as it had all C language properties with an additional concept of “classes.” However, it was renamed C++ in 1983.
It is pronounced as “see-plus-plus.”
PHP stands for Hypertext Preprocessor (that was earlier stood for Personal Home Pages) is a server-side scripting language which is designed to develop Dynamic websites, Static websites or Web applications & can be embedded into HTML.
It was originally created by Mr. Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994; the PHP reference implementation is now produced by A PHP Group. The scripts of PHP can only be interpreted on a server that has PHP installed. The client computers accessing the PHP scripts require the web browser only.
A PHP file contains the PHP tags & ends with the extension “.php”.
HTML is the computer language which devised to allow website creation. These websites can be viewed then by anyone else connected to the Internet. It is relatively easy to learn, with the basics being accessible to most people in one sitting; & quite powerful in what it allows you to create. It is constantly undergoing revision & evolution to meet the demands & requirements of the growing Internet audience under the direction of the » W3C, the organization charged with designing & maintaining the language.
The definition of HTML is the HyperText Markup Language.
- HyperText is the method by which you move around on the web by clicking on the special text called hyperlinks which bring you to the next page. The fact which is hyper just means it is not linear i.e. whenever you want by clicking on links you can go to any place on the Internet, there is no set order to do things in.
- Markup is what the HTML tags do to the text inside them. They mark it as the certain type of text (italicized text, for example).
- HTML is a Language, as it has the code-words & syntax like any other language.
