good question !! I think the word "framework" is modern fashion term in the
first case. in former days we used to say "library" C comes with a standard
library, in modern words C comes with a standard framework. I use my own
framework, means I reuse my code written for similar things before, so I use
my "framework". its like a painter, he uses a ready made frame to paint what
ever he wants,

u can use the yahoo UI framework to "paint" ur page. A operating system is a
"framework" unifieing the underlaying hardware.

as in former days u said "library" u say more modern "framework" in both
cases its a bunch of functions doing some stuff the user of the framework
hasn't to take care about by using the framework.

hope that helps

Hi there,
I've heard of frameworks, but I don't quite know what they are used for.
I've done a little search on the internet, but even though I've been able to
find different PHP frameworks, I'm not quite sure what they offer, or in
what they differ, or why I shouldn't just use PHP as it is.
Can someone give a little bit of explaination?
