Rasmus Lerdorf on implementing the first version of PHP “I wrote a very simple parser that would pick tags out of HTML files and replace them with the output of the corresponding functions in the C library.”
Maybe, but I highly doubt anyone really cares…
Besides, in pure PHP files, you’ll only find one <?php tag at the very top of the file.
In the views, we now mostly use template engines that make using the php tags obsolete.
Even after doing as instructed, it still doesn’t show as it should.
I ran the same code on Codecademy after I deleted the closing tag and this is how the file looks in browser.
the quotation mark and semicolon of the php code are visible, how can I change that??
I even tried it on different browsers but it still shows the same result.
While learning HTML I would simply execute the code in any browser, but I just found out that for most programming languages you need to download a framework for it. In my case, I downloaded “xampp” and I have no problem now. Since I had no programming experience, I couldn’t have known that.
I hope this comment would be of help to a beginner who might find themselves stuck here too.
This is the output they asked for, and I’d rather it let me move on. Changing “Hello, world!” to “I love PHP!” does not, in fact, teach anyone PHP, and yet it’s the act of changing one sentence to another that we’re graded on.
