has a small table outlining the results of a page-based script language
shootout between PHP, ASP, ColdFusion and JSP...PHP was the fastest, but in
the accompanying review it was criticized somewhat for its lack of mature
development tools and its eclectic set of functions (especially the lack of
a standard database-independent API).
PHP can be used outside a web environment, too, but I don't know how the
performance stacks up against Java or C in that respect. I would assume it's
slower, being interpreted and all, but it *was* significantly faster than
JSP which often byte-compiles to servlets, so...
