What is phpGolf?

phpGolf is a code golf server for the PHP programming language.

The term comes from the original Perl Golf, where the goal is to solve programming challenges with as few bytes as possible.
Just like in real golf where players aspire to get the ball in the hole with as few strokes as possible.

This is not a place to learn about good programming practice. This is just for fun.
