Personally, I like php as a general purpose language. IMO, the syntax
is more straight forward than perl and it has very nice on-line
documentation. It also has linkages to almost any package you can think
of. An interpreted language also has a lot of advantages when debugging.
There are a lot of people who have learned php as a part of web
programming. Most don't think of it when it comes to general purpose
tasks, but it is Turing complete so it can do just about anything.
