in reply to Perl, the right tool for the job?

In a very similar situation, I have successfully and recently used the tool haXe (, which is a cross-platform tool, on the client side, and Perl (of course...) on the server side.

What I would suggest at this point is that you fully flesh out the functional specifications for the project, from stem to stern, paying particular attention to the server side and to the client/server interactions if you think that these will be problematic.   (Not just, “unfamiliar at the moment to you.”)   Be more concerned with what the two computers need to do and to say, than, at this point, with how the trick will be done.   Build a complete and detailed, finished, blueprint of a project that hasn’t even been started yet.   (And don’t start it until you’ve done that.)

Perl, of course, is the very best tool with which to do anything ... ;-) ... it even makes Julienne fries!

Seriously, you have plenty of options on the server side.   Plenty of good ones.
