in reply to mason and embperl

There are a number of Reasons to use Mason and EmbPerl. But the most important I can find. Security! And as I see the other benefits. Stability!

The most important reason for a company to give up a eval:ing thing. Support!

But these are just opinions!

      I surprised you didn't recommend COBOLScript.

      My eloquent defense was based on the principle of what certain things are made for. COBOL -> heavy business processing. Perl -> process large amounts of information.

      This means that for HTML templating I think that Perl is better suited than COBOL for the particular task.

      Actually I don't like COBOL either, I just believe it has a place like FORTRAN.


        Both Fortran and COBOL have a place - generating disasters for saner languages to clean up. :-)
