  • The tone of the posting confuses me. Are we merely cheering for mod_perl (something I can get behind), or are we also cheering for the non-increase in the use of mod_php? If so, why?

    I don't use mod_php, but I know that it has its weaknesses. It also seems to get more shit than its due among Perl programmers. For a programmers of a language that revels in the multiplicity of ways of doing things, I wonder why the schadenfreude. Or am I just imagining it?

    Now if we were talking about ASP... :-)

      I've got to say that most often when talking to PHP "developers" I'm on defense.

      Most seem to want proclaim things such as PHP's amazing ability to split strings on a pattern, or something like that.

      Even in my job perl comes across as an "old" language, unusable for todays modern tasks. Of course the sheer amount of projects we have going kinda refutes that argument :)
