    PERL or PHP

    Hi all,

    I can program in PERL but have never used PHP.

    Are there any real good reasons why I should learn the latter and is it better for running mySQL?

    Do a search for php and perl and see what you can find; we just had a big discussion on this. The bottom line is that PHP was intended for use in web applications, whereas PERL began an as administrative tool, so it's more powerful but not as targeted. Either one will do fine for web applications, and both do equally well with MySQL.
