Yet Another Stupid Perl Versus PHP Rant

Espe­cial­ly because of all the work I’ve been doing in Dru­pal, I’ve switched most of my devel­op­ment efforts away from Perl solu­tions and start­ed work­ing most­ly with PHP. The «Perl ver­sus PHP» flame­wars on the Inter­net are all over the place and usu­al­ly full of non­sense. I real­ly don’t want to add to that. In fact, I’m pret­ty pleased with PHP. The lan­guage has come a long way since it’s days as PHP/FI. I’ve come to appre­ci­ate its vari­able scop­ing scheme, which caused me fits when I first start­ed port­ing code from Perl to PHP.
