  • PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor

    PHP stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, but what i don't get, is that the P in PHP, stands for PHP... so is it just like an infinite loop or something?

    PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor
    PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor: Hypertext Preprocessor
    etc.. etc..

    why did they do this? lol

              Recursive acronyms are quite common.
