Towards php comment 000

Exactly. I talked with the designer of PHP, Rasmus Lerdorf, sometime around 2001 or 2002 at one of our LUG meetings. Very bright guy, and impressed upon us that PHP was truly an organically grown language. It started as a Perl app, later rewritten to C. Rather than butcher the history, I'll point you off to http://us2.php.net/history.
