in thread Multi tiered web applications in Perl

I do write serious Perl applications for my day job. A few examples of apps I've heard about:
  • An application that will take inputs in nearly every format known to man (including screen scrapes of vt100 terminals), munge the input according to arbitrarily-defined rules, then output it in any number of outputs, defined at run-time?
  • An application that securely handles over M$100 in seed orders yearly.
  • E-Toys, the most-hit website behind E-bay and Amazon.

Would those qualify as serious web apps?

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

The idea is a little like C++ templates, except not quite so brain-meltingly complicated. -- TheDamian, Exegesis 6

... strings and arrays will suffice. As they are easily available as native data types in any sane language, ... - blokhead, speaking on evolutionary algorithms

Please remember that I'm crufty and crochety. All opinions are purely mine and all code is untested, unless otherwise specified.

    I'm not questioning the seriousness of your projects. I was questioning the language that you used when you said, "90% of every Perl application has already been written, tested, and deployed."

    Maybe it is a silly thing to harp on, but it is patently false.
