Fellow monks,

I have been successfully running Perl websites since 1999 and am completely happy with it. Unfortunately, some butt-munch manager in our IT department has decided to make an issue of my website being crafted from "Antiquated Technology". Given the fact that his idea of "state of the art" is Cold Fusion, can you please help me come up with some *objective* bullet points in defense of continuing to use Perl?

My architecture is as follows:
  • RH Linux (not at issue here)
  • Apache2
  • mod_perl2
  • Embperl::Object (I know, it's crusty but solid)
  • DBI
  • Oracle 10G (not at issue here)

Thank you.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
