    PHP <-> CGI/Perl

    Hi,

    I started to learn CGI with Perl as I begin with Serverside Programmation. Then I read a bit about PHP and I stopped learning Perl, because PHP seemed to be much more easier and practically.
    Since then i did all in PHP and i love it.

    What are the advantages and disadvantages of Perl and PHP?

    Why do you use PHP and not Perl?
    Or viceversa?

    Thanks very much.
    I found a lot, too.

    But what I would like to know is why YOU are using Perl/PHP/ASP or anything else.
    :-)

    Greetz,

    P.D.: Why was this topic moved? Is a discussion about Serverside languages no technology discussion??

    Why do I personally use PHP?
    Good points about PHP
    • It's easy to learn/use.
    • Hosting is cheap!
    • I do not need to take a class or buy books to learn it. Again, it's cheap!
    • I have a deep hatred for microsoft.

    I like also like perl, but PHP is my favorite. I think it has more flexibility.
    I hope this helps.

    Don't most people?

    I like PHP because of its ease of use and it makes working with databases quite easy. If you were working with OOP though, Perl is the way to go...until PHP 5 comes out...
