  • mod_perl isn't getting web developers because it isn't a web application framework. PHP is.

    I think it is not the right thing to compare PHP with mod_perl.
    At least from the point of view of the web application developer PHP can be compared to

    • Apache::ASP
    • Apache::PSP
    • Mason
    • Embperl
    • CGI scripts

    just to name a few. But even that is not totally correct as PHP provides database access, capability to send e-mail and whatnot while the above frameworks "only" provide the web front end part.

    This is a nice list

    • Exactly -- Apache::ASP makes PHP look hard, and Mason has really grabbed a large part of the "EZ web app" market as well. These are very similar to using PHP. The only real difficulty at this point is the install (on OSes that don't have good packages) and I think the approach taken in Krang handles that quite well.
