    Interesting that such a large sites makes suge use of Perl...although I suppose thats still common practice.

    I wonder how long it'll be before Yahoo and a lot of other big name sites switch to PHP/ASP? ESPN.com is integrating ASP as we speak...

    For all we know they could be using php or asp. All you have to do is set up your server to process .epl files as php files. You could configure php files to be processed with a .asp extension if you wanted or visa versa.

    Forget my post.
    I hit the reply button before d3v posted but didn't get round to writing my reply for about 20 minutes

    That said the information in my post is still largely correct, but I didn't realise that .epl was commonly used for embedded perl files.

    By the way is embedded perl just mod_perl?

    i talked about there forums awhile back, but now I'm interested in how they run there site.

    The extension for some of their pages is: '.epl' never heard of it before, I am guessing that they run off a Unix based server (though at times its awfully slow).

    I dont want to waste anyones time I would just like to know if any of you know how much time and effort something like iTurf takes to run, not that I plan to do the same thing. I just find it interesting...

    EPL is Embedded Perl. It's similar to the way PHP is embedded, except the language is Perl.
