Re: Perl applications
in thread Perl applications
However using perl to program our applications is not an option, as quite frankly its not reliable enough
What does "not reliable enough" mean, exactly? A piece of perl code randomly stops working one day?
and has too much non-deterministic behavour
Uhm. Like what?
plus it doesn't have some of the constructs we need.
Again: What constructs are you missing that you can't possibly implement (easily even) in perl?
Its not strongly typed
This is just wrong. Perl is strongly typed: scalars, lists, hashes. This is as opposed to languages like C and java which aren't strongly typed.
