    PHP is not C, even if the syntax tries to convince you of the contrary.

    @Surreal is that the actual output, or the expected one?

    output: echo "a" to "yz" / that's the actual output

    This works for me with a very small change: for ($i = 'a'; $i != 'aa'; $i++) { echo "$i\n"; }

    was going to suggest this should go on a new site called wtfphp modeled after wtfjs, but looks like that site already exists, at phpwtf

    The comment about that PHP is not C - was the most keenest, example: in c: char c = 'a'; is not the same as in php: $c = 'a';, the point is that in C there is type of char(character 1 symbol), but not in PHP, if U tell PHP $c = 'a'; - means this is a string with just 1 character. That's why U can't loop through 28 characters adequately in PHP. I hope every programmer will learn low-level languages and strong-typing along with it, without forgetting about Math practices, which will help them to be stronger.
