I originally designed Have they looked at what your wrote? Have they given PHP ANY thought and a little attention to PHP?? I've been a Perl programmer for the last 6 years. Just about a month ago someone asked me to do something for him in PHP. I gave it a shot. A couple of weeks after I took a test at a consulting company and I scored higher on PHP than Perl :( But beyond the above, I would never use Perl for cgi. I still prefer mod_perl for large applications but I'd certainly argue to use PHP for anything involving a few screen shots. If your technical people are worth anything they ought to look at PHP. Even though I did not program in PHP for those 6 years I did encourage a talented html guy to learn PHP and he did a site for us using PHP (he and the designer worked on it without my intervention). I guess because he never knew about cgi programming in Perl he did not argue for all of us to do more in PHP. BTW, if anyone has used the Perl HTML::Template module and knows a PHP templating module that is as good or better, please let me know. I might have missed it but I shudder at most of the PHP template systems I see in comparison.
