The choice

Although PHP might be your first choice when doing "web development" that doesn't mean it's the best one.

Food for thought:

Unbiased facts:

  • PHPs availability is much better on "foreign" servers.
  • PHP is much easier to use than Perl for beginners, because you can just throw HTML in PHP files (or vice versa).
  • Perl is much cleaner than PHP.
  • Perls webserver integration sucks. Neither CGI, nor mod_perl nor fastcgi give you the ease of use of PHP.


  • Securing
  • Tuning (Zend Optimizer & replacements)
  • Smarty
  • PEAR


  • FastCGI vs. mod_perl
  • Package Management (dh-make-perl, etc)
