in thread CGI and mod_perl vs PHP vs ruby on rails

Sorry but AFAIK Perl on Rails is vaporware. The main reason why the announcements got such a big audience are IMHO depictions of the pathetic development environment at the BBC.

But did anyone ever see any code?

Catalyst is IMHO very TIMTOWTDI flexible (e.g. allowing integration of all main CPAN templating systems) but heavy and requesting much knowledge and planing.

If you are looking for a more Rails like monolithical approach in Perl you may want to have a look at Jifty or Mojo.

    There is code. It's used on BBC Programmes.

    I think they open sourced it, but it's only released as a tarball, and I can't find it at the moment.

    Code-wise it's a bit of a stretch to say it's Ruby on Rails in Perl. It was written by programmers who use and like (and I think pefer) Ruby and RoR, who had to use a very limited Perl environment. As such it's very much inspired by RoR but it's lacking a lot of features (no ActiveRecord for example).
