Perl: the Markov chain saw

I second Arunbear's list, but would add my preference for python and php. In my last job I learned (scratched the surface of) python and grew to like it quite well. I don't believe Python was built to be a web development language, but it certainly can perform in a web environment well. Similar to Perl's "mod_perl" package which builds a perl interpreter right into the webserver process(es), "mod_python" does the same thing with the Python interpreter, so performance is good. Python is not as mature as Perl, but what other language (besides C) is ?? ;-)

It's been a few years since I've used PHP, but when I did I came away really liking it. PHP *was* built to be a web development language from the ground up. The standard PHP installation comes with lots of stuff that other languages like perl require additional packages for, like session handling and more (that I can't recall right now). And, PHP is blazingly fast.

Just my 2c.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
