in reply to CGI/Perl vs PHP

Actually, a lot of web based stuff is done in PHP... and I try not to sound TOO sarcastic about the a lot. Perl is loads more than just CGI... and CGI is a tad more than just perl (ofcourse 99.9% of the CGI scripts happen to be in perl). CGI/Perl and PHP are not comparable (trying to stay out of a holy war here). I'm sure PHP is good for some web based stuff but I try to prefer perl (in all it's forms, including mod_perl - which happens to be loads faster than PHP). Every PHP geek will claim PHP is better for so many reasons, every perl geek knows better.

... I'm belgian but I don't play one on TV.
