Perl OR ASPby Anonymous Monk
|on Jan 17, 2006 at 21:53 UTC||Need Help??|
Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm looking foward to building a online community website that offers personal homepages for people. I'm planning to include it all, buddy list, instant messaging, profiles, polls, counters, message board, etc.
Now I'm Pretty good w/ perl and would be able to build such a site with it. I'm also good with databases too. I'll be using a Apache with mod_perl to handle such a site.
But lately, more and more sites like these are using ASP. Whats the difference? I can't seem to find any where that just gives a flat out explanation on the difference between ASP and Perl. I know Perl can do much more then just web developing, but when a project requires just "web development", which language should I use, Perl or ASP? Are there any benefits with ASP in web developing that can not be used with Perl?
Any suggestions or feedback will be greatly appreciated.
