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.
