  • I also have sinned.

    I tried to talk the operator of a dot-org that wanted dynamic content and templates to install slashcode and some other Perl templatey stuff, but he was already using PHP for his Photo Gallery and other projects, alas. With the built-in MYSQL hookds it's not half bad, and it's *almost* Perl ... for what it's good for, we shouldn't need ereg_whatever_match very often. *sigh*.

    The website is PHP fronting MYSQL for dynamic content. Currently updates are still manual SQL, eventually we might add a GUI, but volume isn't so high it's a bother. Originally it was static pages generated by perl -MText::Template from fielded text files, but I needed something a little more plausible. I do the offline preprocessing for the graphics in Perl still. Maybe later I'll give him a Perl DBI+GD CGI to make them dynamic too ... later.

    If PHP comes out with a CRUD screen generator in the next release, that understands foreign keys somewhat, I'd be happy.

    Next time I do a dot.org website, if they don't want MASON, they can find someone else ... I tell myself ;-)
