Template file used by CakePHP, a development framework for PHP Web applications; contains the PHP "view" code within the Model-View-Controller (MVC) software architecture design pattern; stores a template for how information is displayed in the Web application.
CTP files may contain layouts, elements, or helpers. Layouts define presentation code. Elements contain smaller, reusable segments of view code. Helpers contain classes that encapsulate logic used between many views, elements, or layouts.
CTP files are stored in the CakePHP /app/views directory.
