Just out of curiosity, have any of you guys ever heard of PEAR and PECL?
If i was hiring a /professional/ PHP programmer and s?he didn't know what PEAR was, s?he's get laughed the fuck out of the room.
Sure. The PDF generator is awesome. But there are a lot of great extensions.
This is just another reason why PHP is such a great language.
During the summer, I was working with ASP. We wanted to generate an Excel spreadsheet. It was dificult, and I had to use a partialy complete library.
Then with PHP, you can just download the PEAR excel spreadsheet writer library, and it's awesome.
PHP just kills ASP for this reason alone. All the great things you can do with pure PHP.
BTW all, please try not to post in this thread for sometime because I'm not going to be home for a few hours, and I wont be able to make the update right away.
