View Full Version : PHP <-> CGI/Perl

06-02-2003, 11:19 AM

I started to learn CGI with Perl as I begin with Serverside Programmation. Then I read a bit about PHP and I stopped learning Perl, because PHP seemed to be much more easier and practically.
Since then i did all in PHP and i love it.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of Perl and PHP?

Why do you use PHP and not Perl?
Or viceversa?

Thanks very much.
I found a lot, too.

But what I would like to know is why YOU are using Perl/PHP/ASP or anything else.


P.D.: Why was this topic moved? Is a discussion about Serverside languages no technology discussion?? :rolleyes:

Why do I personally use PHP?
Good points about PHP

It's easy to learn/use.
Hosting is cheap!
I do not need to take a class or buy books to learn it. Again, it's cheap!
I have a deep hatred for microsoft.

I like also like perl, but PHP is my favorite. I think it has more flexibility.
I hope this helps. :D

Don't most people? :D

I like PHP because of its ease of use and it makes working with databases quite easy. If you were working with OOP though, Perl is the way to go...until PHP 5 comes out...

Object-Oriented Programing
