perlid has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm a newbie here. I signed up because I've got a question regarding the choice of perl or php for doing CGI stuff. I've some knowledge of Perl but none of PHP. My question is: Which of the two should I use as a backend for web applications?
Recently, I asked a friend about whether he uses Perl and he said, to my horror and dismay: "Perl is dead."
I've heard of Perl 6 and have been following some of its developments. There doesn't seem to be much progress on where it's headed to over the past months.
Does anybody know anything about Perl 6 to shed some light on it?
