I've been programming perl for 10 years now and I'm set to start a major project for the company I work for.
I'd like to do it in perl, but my boss would like php. Ideally, I'd like to choose the language that would be best for the project. If I really want to do it in perl, he'll let me.
Obviously, this site is geared toward the perl gurus -- but seriously, are there advantages over doing it in php over perl? Which is more secure?
Will I have a difficult time since I've done almost no php?
The project is a simple web-iterface that takes in data, stores it in a mysql database. There is also an bidding/auction section to the site.
