The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

I am trying to learn my first programming language, PHP.
Can PHP replace Pearl for Linux scripts such as automating task or anything else Pearl can be used for in Linux?

If so, please recommend a good book or web article.

PHP can replace Perl for most online tasks, and tends to be faster. It is possible to compile PHP as a command line binary but I don't know anyone who has - in this respect it could also replace some of your command line Perl scripts.

Tried it out is what I'd advise! Its easy to setup.
