    Phoronix: PHP 7.3 Beta Benchmarks Showing Good Performance

    Following last week's PHP 7.3 beta release, which also marks the feature freeze for this next PHP7 update, I've been running some performance benchmarks on a couple different Linux systems...

    PHP - the inconsistent language where some functions are named with words separated by underscores and some not.
    Example: is_countable() and imagecreatefromstring()

      The "inconsistent" language that currently powers over 80% of the internet
      Besides recent versions have been very consistent. Modern PHP is very well structured thanks to all the influence from Java.

        A lot of PHP standard library is thin wrappers over C functions, and naming conventions where preserved. That was originally a strength. Now, that most PHP devs do not know C libs, it's slightly negative, but nothing a good IDE can not help with (fuzzy search for the win)

          PHP should just add overload alias functions, making all naming consistent to shut people up. I am sick and tired of hearing it, it does not matter.

            Do you have to complain about this and the weird error handling in every PHP topic on Phoronix?

              One of the new features of 7.3 I'm enjoying is the native FFI support. It's handy for evaluating performance gains of using external libraries before going to the bother of developing an extension.
