Of course, that's a ridiculous reason to choose one language over another. But to augment what you're saying, sometimes certain languages are chosen because of the availability of libraries and tools, and, more importantly, because of the availability of skilled programmers. That's especially important if a client has to expand and modify a solution in the future. - BW PS, Once again, tedd, apologies for backchanneling you... -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
