PHP to PERL ?by brendgard (Novice)
|on Dec 27, 2005 at 23:00 UTC||Need Help??|
brendgard has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
We have been tossing around the idea of upgrading part of our site from a PHP script to one written in PERL. Part of what's holding us back is my almost total lack of PERL experience.
I do have one question that is probably the biggest I have, but is probably so insignificant to you that you'll laugh. PHP has require() and/or include() that allow me to change the contents of one file and it changes what's displayed in the page(or pages). For example, I insert
into the main page, and to change any news for that page, I only need edit the announcments.txt file instead of the page being displayed.
It also allows me to add code(such as an RSS feed).
I'm sure there has to be the same setup for PERL, I just don't seem to be able to find it. Anybody point me in the right direction? I don't even have an idea of where to looks in the books it would seem, what question to ask.
