Programming / Re: Php Vs Python Which Is More Easy!! by guru01(m): 11:03pm On Aug 19

i saw this comming!

i know more php e-warriors are loading their e-guns, ready to shoot, but wait, has php ever been compiled to bytecode directly?

guruO1, yungcheda
Is a programming language a compiled language?

Raypawer:
Olumyco, scripting languages are not compiled directly by the system, rather an interpreter comes to play before the system could run the code

eg. php, python, javascript

mean while for
Programming Languages, the system understands the code and the are compiled directly

eg. Golang, C#, Java, C, C++

since java sometimes is interpreted instead of compiled, so then?

if thats the case it means you can compile php directly into bytecode..

learn, u no go gree!



First we need to know what a programming language is.
At its minimum, a programming language is something that is read by the computer and instructs it to perform certain operations. Many people would also expect a general purpose programming language to be Turing complete. However there could be situations where a domain-specific language isn't Turing complete but is still a useful programming language for that specific domain.
Programming languages can be compiled or interpreted, and they could run on many platforms or just one specific one. Different needs require different programming languages. Clearly PHP is a programming language.

My definition of "real" programming language would be any programming language that has at least one practical usage in the real world. This is opposed to an esoteric programming language which typically has no practical usage. Since PHP is used widely to solve real problems it easily meets this requirement for being a real programming language, although it is arguably not a particularly beautiful language.

PHP is a pragmatic language. It was created out of a specific need to be able to quickly make web pages (the name originally stood for Personal Home Pages) and the language was extended as required. Since there was no theoretical background or strong design principles driving its creation (there isn't even a formal specification of the language) it is less clean than many other more modern languages.

However PHP is good at what it was designed for and many sites use it, even very large sites like Facebook, Yahoo! and Wikipedia.

@op, you can do your search like this: when i search for words like: chidinma e should be able to give me the nearest babe to my location bearing that name, complete with her bbm pin, whatsapp, 2go and all contacts.
If you can accomplish this one like this, I shall alert all my boys to start using sach with immediate effect.
Lol, OK will look into this.

Guru01, do not open source it..
here is a good advice:
Start small and grow bigger..
Your search engine should grow vertically instead of horizontally..
It is better to have 100 users who really need your service, than to have 100,000 users who used it because you told them to use it..
I think you should first make your service a online local directory..
where users can find location of places or business locally,
for example I go to bayelsa for holiday, need to find a shopping mall, I would just go to your to ur site and type "Shopping malls in Bayless state" and get results..
Though d idea may make u spend money(u will need to get people in the 36 states of Nigeria to give u locations of hotels, schools, recreation centered, e.t.c).. Guess what google cannot know more about Nigeria than u(there are in U.S.A, u are in Nigeria)..
Believe me if you can get like one hundred active users on this kind of service u will be growing vertically(small numbers of users who really love ur service)..
Then from there you can add option for webmasters to submit their websites to your site..
If u can achieve this you will be surprised how the early users of your service will be the one to market it for you(word of mouth method of marketing, dis was what made whatsapp popular) ..
That was how facebook, snapchat, etc started..
Facebook started as an online directory for profiles of Harvard students(small group of highly engaged users) from there it supported other universities ND now facebook is used all over the world)..
This secret is what most Nigerian startups fail to know, they want to grow horizontally instead of vertically(which is wrong).
You know most Nairaland programmers believe a social network from Africa will not be successful because facebook, twitter, etc already exists, guess what, I will be launching my social network, soon nd I will shock u guys cause I have a secrets to startups success which others don't, I am more of an enterpreneur than a programmer(techpreneur), and also Paul Graham(Silicon Valleys best business adviser) is my business mentor
Looking into each post critically.

Programming / Re: Php Vs Python Which Is More Easy!! by guru01(m): 9:21am On Aug 16
@op, both are good and rapid language to learn.
Since you are already into Python, stick with it, then you can always learn PHP later.

I will advise you not to relent in your effort,CHINA have baidu(has more user than than GOOGLE CHINA),russia have yandex but in AFRICA we don't have any.You can take advantage of that. START SMALL,STAY FOCUS,REFUSE TO BE STAGNANT my 42 bytes. remember all these search engines don't have the features of google and those who are using it are not GHOST.
You are very right bro. Only where Google has power is in the EU and US.

Sure I can't rival Google at the moment, but am sure of one thing.
Opensorcing it is a good idea, because I have never seen an open source search engine.

My brother there is a void out there, in it are random possibilities, no one can tell you for sure what is out there. Continue with your passion for your outcome will be new in comparison with numerous outcomes.

The Nigerian Market is beginning to appreciate softwares in all spheres and there are numerous programmers with skill set so keep in mind that you are in for some competition and that with God all things are possible.
I like the part that states all things are possible with God.

Is this a good path to follow, what are the disadvantages and advantages, should I make all the code open or some part of it since its a product.
Please advice.

helloo guru01, you have done a tremedous job on your search engine thingy and i must say, its a very welcome idea, and an impressive stride at it.
.
"so here's the question, why dont you make your search engine opensource?"
.
i know u'll probably curse me for this in your locally focused mind.
but u would agree with me that you stand a 99% chance of hitting the world with your search engine if you make the opensource move....forget about u loosing grip of ur baby project... lookup linus travold on google.
.
you see, if you make this opensource, you will be like the linux pain in microsoft's ass. or more like the android pain in IOS ass. (I'm sure u get d idea)
.
there is no way you wont hit the world being opensource, you've got the nairaland team, coupled with the whole african team, not to mention the world working on making the first ever african opensource search engine.
.
BTW, this is an advice....a billion dollar advice...take it or leave it.
you'll be surprised someone is already making use of this piece of advice...

FYI, the site is offline
Thanks working on this
