Zope and Perl

[ #6996 ]

Well, I had a brief amount of joy in life squashed horribly.

My university moved from Apache (I believe) servers to a central web cluster running Zope (at least the schools of engineering that is). I was browsing through The Zope Book and noticed a section about using Perl in Zope.

Well, talking with the web guys I found out that Perl isn't supported because of security issues when using it.

So now I have to climb two hills (Zope and Python) if I want to make good use of Zope for my department. I also want to investigate these security concerns with Perl. I think it's mostly how Zope (Python in reality I believe) handles Perl.

So make that three hills I may have to climb (maybe two and a half if I'm lucky).

Other than that the new job is ok, I think. Always busy, always not really knowing how things should work or even how they could work.

Well, enough lamenting. I have more reading to do before I hit the hay.

    Well, I'd be interested in hearing what these alleged "security issues" are, but I'd be mighty surprised if it turns out to be anything other than the typical FUD lies the python folks like to spread about perl.
