in reply to CGI and mod_perl vs PHP vs ruby on rails

PHP is extremely easy to learn and use. Because of this, more than half of the internet is cluttered with garbage .php files.

If you are doing this commercially (as someone above me asked), the unfortunate truth is you may be better off using PHP because others will be able to edit the program without much stress. On the other hand, it might be more efficient in the long run if you used Perl for reasons you can see here at the Monastery. And finally, Ruby is just a silly fad :o

Also, you have to realize you are in a Perl Monastery; we are biased :P
