in reply to Is Perl the right language for a large web application?

I don't care about frameworks really. I think I am doing this from the ground up.

Thatís a recipe for FAIL if it really is a massive project. Itís also an end-run around the language question. If you really plan to do everything from scratch then language choice should only have one criterion: whichever you know best. If you really do plan to do a huge project without frameworks, or at least scaffolding, and tons of tests and so on and such like, you will fail. You may bristle and -- and gnash now at that string of words but I am a vessel of truth in this. Learning frameworks is hard, sometimes very, doing it yourself is as hard + you lose the combined effort of the dozens of devs and hundreds of users who built and tested everything.

On the intended question. Yes, Perl. It has every tool for success.
