php just outputs html/text, never php itself. the content-type header in http protocol tells how the browser should process info

Rocks... =/

I had to.

On a random note, making a work-in-progress website to serve these needs: Pragma Zone

Jimmy, on a server, where you have PHP spitting out HTML code... ...how does a browser recognize it as HTML code?

I'm after functionality first. Then I'll worry about performance.

Also, can I get a few erlang examples from you? The documentation isn't helping me one bit. It's helping me understand syntax, kinda, but I really need better interpretation of the logic...

you don't. Also you can't make a chat in pure javascript. Well, maybe with node.js as the server, but it's pretty shit.

Jimmy, how would I get PHP or other normally-unseen-by-users code from a server? [Planning on making a chat in purely Javascript]

Wait, Gwynn, you're learning Python? Eek, I'd better step up, and learn the crapload of other languages. D=

Jimmy, PM sent about manually making a 'exponent
expbase, float exppower
' method.

yeah it works now.

Google's examples were designed for python27. If you want to use python31 there's a minor differences trying to make the language more standardized. You can have both versions installed at the same time though. There's some good intros to 3.1 elsewhere.

The changes not a big deal and mostly deal with "print" for most examples. You need to add parenthesis, eg
instead of
print "Hello World"

C:\Python31>python ./google/hello.py
File "./google-python-exercises/hello.py", line 29
print 'Hello', name
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

alright, so is there a way I can run it without doing this every time I want to run a python file?
  Retired / 9y 7d 5h 13m 28s
my bad
windows key + R then type cmd
or start -> run -> cmd

You need to open a console first, then navigate to python directory or examples directory to run properly.
  Webmaster / 9y 7d 5h 27m 56s
yeah, it just keeps closing.
