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. :-)
