I like perl and templates (HTML::Template), Its easy for development, building prototypes, and html developers I have worked with in the past prefer it over PHP since the html is not embeded in the code. I have not done any real development in PHP so I would not feel comfortable making a statement on the major differences. I think perl does the job just fine. Porting this to PHP should work well, as you would probably even notice a slight speed increase in not having to load an interpreture. I suppose the counter argument to that would be mod_perl. Anyhow, if speed was my concern I would just do it in C :)

Anyways, Perl with CGI.pm and HTML::Template.pm is a great combination for web development. One could easily say "why not do it in JAVA,C++,TCL, etc ......"

If someone really wants to be cool, let them redo the html in this current project as my html prowess is really quite substandard :)

PHP support ?
I am new to the community, but I am going to look at your code and see if I can learn how to adapt it for use with PHP. Again I am new and wonder is there a reason you picked perl ? What are some advantages of each ? major diffrences ?
