A person who is tasked with “converting” a JS application to a corresponding Perl implementation really does not give a damn about PerlMonks petty-politics. That person is looking for a technical answer from someone who has been there, and I feel that I am quite-qualified to answer this thread ... which is why I did, and put my name on it. I told you the experience of having led a small team of programmers through a very similar set of requirements, and of particular issues which we found. All of this is truth. Therefore, I consider it to be relevant. Good evening to you, sirs.
