Perl is more accessible to the below-average programmer.

The popularity of PHP suggests otherwise.

    Just cause PHP is more accessible has nothing to do with the fact that Perl is still extremely accessible. :-)

    Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
    Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
    Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
    Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

      That's quite true. As a below-average programmer myself, and one that has used (and still uses) both Perl and PHP for various projects, I know from personal experience that Perl is very accessible to below-average programmers (like me) and that PHP is even more so.
