There are a few advantages to perl that nobody has mentioned yet:
* It is versatile. You can use it everywhere, from database interaction
to log file analysis, formatting your e-mail, process controlling.
* Under mod_perl on Apache it is comparable in speed to other
* It is free (as in speech and as in beer)
* There are some excellent modules like CGI.pm and Template::Toolkit
that make web page development very easy.
* You can write OO Perl.
Its amazing what a skilled perl programmer can accomplish in six lines
using modules and mod_perl.
