LAMP vs. LAMP Rematch

,----[ Quote ]
| Both Perl and PHP are robust and powerful languages for creating
| web applications. They both offer large libraries of code, database
| drivers, and third party add-ons. For small and medium sized
| applications, the difference would be hard to notice. Extrapolatingt
| hese results to high traffic applications is not a good idea because
| too many other factors come into play. Whether you opt for Perl or
| PHP in your web development adventures, you win.
