So what is all this about? It appears we can now use PHP on the .NET framework. Why we would want to do this is anyone’s guess although the team have a stab at telling us on the site. In my experience PHP people are generally happy doing their PHP thing with all of the joys and functionality that PHP has to offer, .NET people likewise and never the twain shall meet.
So we can now use PHP in script blocks within ASP.NET pages. Could this be the start of something beautiful?
