go to www.php.net & search for "PHP vs PERL" then go thru the results. NOTE: this comparison is from PHP's point of view.

I have been using CGI for a long time and now I am switching to PHP. PHP is much easier. The only thing I miss in PHP are some very useful Perl libraries which I have been using while programming CGI BIN scripts in Perl.

depends on what you want to do, for backends with alot of text procesing and regexp i prefer perl for frontend php is better to work with design.
