What can i do with php?

For this question most of us will shout loud that we can create websites with php and some geeks  would say we can do server side scripting.

But is that the only thing php can do?

PHP can be used for the following 3 purposes.

  1. Server Side Scripting for your websites
  2. Command line scripting, you can run php on your terminal (linux) or command prompt (in windows)
  3. Writing desktop applications- you can use PHP-GTK to create desktop applications.

The second and third options may come as a surprise to most of the people. Keep in mind PHP is not just a Server side scripting language
