Actually people do do the same thing and perl and you know it :P Both perl and php support calling sql with parameters using ? to insert variables. If someone does not know what language to use at all, I would suggest php simply because its a good, quick, easy language to get started in without too much difficulty. (In lots of ways including not needing to understand cgi variables, and what the heck Content-type: text/html\n\n is, or learning how to include perl librarys to do all that stuff for you!) PS: I prefer perl but do and have used php frequently. - jacob Jacob Rhoden Phone: +61 3 8344 6102 ITS Division Email: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Melbourne University Mobile: +61 403 788 386 _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
