An open source source for C, C++, OWL, BASIC, MDB, XLS, DOT, and more...
PHP allows writing programs that work the same in Windows and Linux (and other OS) and that give a user the same interface whether accessing the program from the local computer or across the internet. I expect to use those features not just for adding trivial features to web pages, but for more complex GUI applications:
PHP is included with Linux distros. Download from php.net for Windows and other operating systems.
PHP isn't just for web pages. It can be used to write applications that run on your local computer, although for command line utility programs I'm more likely to use Perl.
