Recently we had some serious discussion on local boards.
I prefer calling PHP as Web Framework of C and C++
if you had a time for this fruitless discussion. Please send your opinions.
I think that you can't assume that PHP is a C framework for the web,
basically because when you use a framework (or API or whatever label you
choose to use for describing it) in a language it just abstracts some
aspects of the language making it "easier" to code.
Since you can't compile PHP (as you would probably need to do with a C
API) and since you don't even need C to write something in PHP you can't
call it a C or C++ framework.
In addition to this there is an API for C that can be used to code web
applications and it is known as CGI (it is provided by many languages)
PHP is coded in C and some things are similar in syntax and style but
this is the only relation I can find between the two.
