    html/php probably really simple

    I'm doing an assignment for a class where I need to link a php file to an html.
    Basically all I have to do is demonstrate a php function and write up a paragraph about it.
    Simple, except I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to php.
    I decided to try to use this function:

    <?php
    function jdmonthname2($julianday, $calendar, $abbrev = false) {
    if($calendar == CAL_GREGORIAN && $abbrev) $mode = 0;
    elseif($calendar == CAL_GREGORIAN && !$abbrev) $mode = 1;
    elseif($calendar == CAL_JULIAN && $abbrev) $mode = 2;
    elseif($calendar == CAL_JULIAN && !$abbrev) $mode = 3;
    elseif($calendar == CAL_JEWISH) $mode = 4;
    elseif($calendar == CAL_FRENCH) $mode = 5;
    else $mode = 10;

    return jdmonthname($julianday, $mode);
    }
    ?>

    but I'm not sure how to activate it/link it to the html or anything. In addition to that I can't even view it in the browser to check if it's working.

    If anyone can help I'd appreciate it!

    What kind of assignment is this where you are supposed to work with PHP when you don’t know anything about it?

    PHP is a server-side application, so you need a server in order to execute it and show the results in a browser, you can’t just open PHP files from the filesystem. And to display the result of a PHP operation you’d usually use echo().
