Best Place For Information On Perl
Posted 13 April 2005 - 01:07 PM
I would like to learn Pearl so that I can start working with CGI scripts so that I can in order to build a more inventive/interactive and dynamic website. I would like if someone could point me to a site were I can not only learn Pearl, but also download software to help devlop code. (An IDE of some type.)

However, I would also recommend that you look into PHP. I used to use perl because it was the only thing my hoster would allow, but since I've switched to astahost I find php can do more things more simply. So I am not saying that either language is better, they both excel at certain fields, I am saying look into php and see if it wouldn't do what you want more easily.

Perl.org - well duh
Perl is a powerhouse tool. I used it back in the day before PHP because it was the only tool really for CGI programming that was easily available.
Still, all our in house OS X applications use PERL installer scripts (okay a couple are python).
You can do a lot more with PERL than just web CGI stuff, it is an excellent log/text parsing language...I should say a powerful one.
If your looking to do dynamic webpages, PHP I think is the way to go these days, but I havn't touched PHP in a couple years other than installing CMS systems like Mambo.
