Incompatible warning recommendation

It would be nice if extensions would warn the user if they are incompatible with script language types such as ASP or Cold Fusion.

I use ASP and I'm starting to warm up to which extensions work with ASP. However, even though I am using ASP, the extensions will "work" in Dreamweaver. It will write PHP into an ASP page and even create the script folders and will do so without any warnings at all.

As a courtesy to those of us that have not yet moved to PHP, it would be nice to have a warning that would alert us to the fact that we shouldn't apply these extensions.

In the meantime, could someone post a link to a list of extensions that can only be used on a php server?

I know that each extension has a "System Requirements" (SR) page but this is a bit of a "workout" to have to go through each page to find the SR for each.

Thanks

Thanks

Thanks for providing that list.

I'm so torn between working on a site that uses a dying language and investing time in recreating an entirely new site in a language I'm not all that comfortable with.

I only wish I had invested my energy toward learning PHP not ASP.

My life would be a LOT easier now.

Well, thanks for the help.

You're welcome.

When I first started developing dynamic Web Pages, I was working in ASP as well. I was not using Dreamweaver though, I was coding ASP in TextPad.

I started drifting to PHP about 6 years ago. I have found the transition form ASP to PHP to be fairly easy. The PHP.net website is very easy to use for looking up functions and getting code examples, much easier than the MSDN website. And the PHP community is very active and willing to help.
