    I disagree. The article is simplistic to the extent of being wrong or misleading in numerous places. Stating that Perl "extended the use of awk" is fine, but Perl also extended C, sed, and various other languages which Larry appreciated. Perl doesn't have to be an interpreted language - use mod_perl.

    The author neglects to mention templating systems, CPAN, or anything else of any technical substance other than how to read from STDIN, dedicating more space to telling us what the current versions of Perl and PHP are.

    zdog judges perl vs. php is a much better place to start researching the relative merits of Perl and PHP.
