in all fairness to ASP. you could have written it shorter and you wrote some things in the ASP one that weren't in the perl one.
Dim objFSO, objTextStream, file
file = Server.MapPath("samplefile.txt")
Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextStream = objFSO.OpenTextFile(file , 2, True)
#If I'm not mistaken you can bump these two writes into one.
objTextStream.WriteLine "We are writing a line of text to our text fil
objTextStream.Write "This is our second line of text" & VBCrLf
#You didn't echo in the perl example
Response.Write "we have written to our text file"
#Are these neccesary ?
Set objTextStream = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing
I myself don't do much ASP or know enough about it to call it "superior" to anything, but let's be fair in our comparison.
