Perl templates?

Hi all

I'm not a Perl programmer but I would like to know what advantages Perl might have over other methods such as includes or php for generating web pages.. especially from the standpoint of SEO.


What types of things are done with Perl and CGI that can't be done in other ways?  


Should this be a method of choice? Or is it just another method.

Hi Linque -

Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is a set of rules that describe how a Web Server communicates with another piece of software on the same machine and how the other piece of software (the 'CGI program') talks to the web server. CGI "scripts" are just scripts which use CGI and can be written in programming languages like Perl, C, Python and PHP3.

Personally I would choose PHP because (in my opinion!) it is easier to learn, quicker to develop, offers more functionality and has more and better resources available.

Hi duz!

So, in terms of SEO Perl has no specific advantage, it's just another way... as opposed to php?  I'm trying to find out if there is something unusually helpful Perl might be able to do that PHP could not..to promote a website. Some particular script or technique?  If they are equal that's useful knowledge for me to know.

Hi Linque -

That's correct neither has any real advantage over the other but they both have their dedicated fan clubs!
