in reply to Meditating on Perl, Python and the Semantic Web

Interesting observation. I am just starting to dip my toe into this area and, in fact, "Programming the Semantic Web" is sitting (currently untouched) on my desk.

While I cannot comment on the Perl vs. Python question, I have been poking around CPAN and I found several modules related to the semantic web. I hope others can add to this list.

    Thank you. As I just posted in my "UPDATE" to my original post, I, too, found some pretty impressie Semantic Web tools (especially under RDF::xxxx stuff) in CPAN.

    I sort of stumbled upon it by accident as I continued to try different "keywords" on CPAN. I just hadn't thought of looking under RDF...shows just how "newbie" I really am in the Semantic Web business.

    I eagerly embarked on a process of trying to install several of the modules that I thought would help my bridge between what the "Programming the Semantic Web" authors were presenting and what I could do with Perl.

    All looked well until I began to install the main modules (RDF::Query, RDF::Core, etc.). Not a single one would install successfully (though many of the lesser, supporting modules did just fine). As best as I can tell, they are all well suited for use on Unix (or Unix-like) systems but don't work well (or at all) on Windows machines (at least on my Windows XP machine).

    So now I'm back to frustration.

    But, on the up side, I am re-encouraged to see that Perl is well entrenched in the "Semantic Web" business. That restores my sense of "balance" as Perl and the "Semantic Web" (no matter any particular opionions one way or the other about the Semantic Web) seem such natural partners.

    Again, thanks so much for your reply. Good luck in your own travels regarding the Semantic Web.
