as you probably know it stands for Read Evaluate Print Loop. its an environment where you can test one line or function of code and not have to set up a full environment to test. lets say i want to test an array loop in php. i could spin up a server and test the file in the browser or run the file in the command line. with REPL i can just test that one piece without much overhead. hope this helps.
