PHP or PERL, Cast your vote now.
Ive been looking at some old threads and saw that people seem to dissagree on which of these two languages is better [for web-based applications]... I personally prefer PHP because of its ease of use and compactability.

PHP is very similar to Perl...
They both have benefits, depending on what you need. yes if you want to do something like AntiOnline of phpBB then PHP would make things a lot easier... Although Perl, in my opinion, is better for Scripts (esp networking...) anyway- that's my thought on the subject.
-take it easy
yeah, I\'m gonna need that by friday...

Heh, Yeah... Each language has its own benefits... But I still think that PHP is better for almost anyu server-based project and with PHP-GTK you can make client-side programs =]
Here are some reads on PHP vs PERL:

Sevari, I agree with you a full 100 percent. I tried ASP, Perl and PHP. And I think PHP is the best of them all. I don't know if I can ever live without it in my field of bussiness.
Especially with MySQL. They fit VERY, VERY, VERY well together. Almost like they are made for each other. And offcourse, we've all heard about the famous LAMP server setup. Linux Apache MySQL PHP. That is the best server setup in my oppinion.... And then offcourse the famous phpMyAdmin to manage our MySQL database in a secure way, using our web browser.....
Yeah, I think my point is made.

it all depends on what you want to do
for quick calculating scripts (and sometimes keeping some log files) then i use perl
but for obvious reasons when i require use of databases then php and mysql is the better option
but as i said, the better option depends on what u want to do
