Reason to like PHP?

Perl;

print { open my $out, ">", "pidfile"; $out or die } $$, "\n";

Ruby;

File.open('pidfile', 'w+'){ |fh| fh.puts Process.pid }

I could have used ‘$$’ instead of Process.pid, but I prefer readability

PHP;

file_put_contents( 'pidfile', getmypid() );

Yeah I know, I know but anyway…
