in reply to Perl is dying

Now see ... I thought this was standard troll bait until I came to this paragraph:

Perl needs a new, snazzy web application server right now. Something that has the performance of mod_perl but doesn't expose Apache's internals; something as easy to install as PHP or RoR, with a great name and a great API. (A toned-down version of mod_perl coupled with T2T and Mason would suffice.)

Except for the PHB remark about a *great name*, this is an excellent idea --- when will your code be available on CPAN?

What? You're not going to do it? So then this is not a case of If not me, than who? but Not me, you. Be a man about it ... You noticed the shortcomings, you identified a need ... start scratching yourself and if my itch matches yours then maybe I'll jump in and help.

    Hmm, if that's so, why has no-one mentioned Catalyst, or Jifty yet?


      Maybe people aren't mentioning Catalyst much because:

      1. It suffers from CPAN Dependency Hell.
      2. It's not portable or accessible for people with <$10/mo. webhosting accounts.

        Try the Shadowcat installer. I used to curse and swear at Cat during installation; ever since Matt posted that thing to the list, installations have been blissfully simple: fire curl -s | sudo perl and forget. 10 minutes later you have a working Cat install.
