Why? Lots of reasons, here are a few:
- Only have to change code in one place rather than many (Which is what I want when I plan to quickly deploy - and add new features in response to a end users requirements.)
- Easier to fix bugs and add features in one place rather than many.
- HTML is designed to display information across platforms.
- I don't have to worry about Perl being on someones machine or about building a executable or about their environment.
- I most likely don't have to train somone how to use the Web based application.
- I can more easily limit access to the information because that capability is built into most web servers.
- Implementation would be fast and flexible.
Honestly, with CSS, web pages can be very sophisticated and look great.
I simply offered my opinion based on my experiences with doing it both ways. He said it was not required, he didn't say, it was not acceptable to use the web.
