I don't do php but I do Python. Ping me if necessary.

I tried Python but Apple hardware makes it difficult because it has installed native v 2.x and I was trying to use v 3 and it drove me nuts so I gave up. PHP will do all I need. Early on I could not find good math libraries in php. I found some in Perl which I had trouble installing. In time I found the phpEXCEL library which solved my math problems!

Sorry, Python is number 2! 😇

Programming languages are like shoes, the longer you use them the more comfy they get. I've been using php for over 20 years and have developed a couple of frameworks, the latest one Object Oriented and "semantic" to match HTML5. The article points out that php can be difficult. You need a top class text editor and BBEdit is tops. With BBEdit I've developed a bunch of debugging tools and since php is an interpreted language it's easy to test small bits of code at a time which fits my short attention span. I must spend well over half my coding time debugging. However, being a fan of Sherlock Holmes I love following clues to find the culprit! Holmes must the the world's best debugger!
