    IMO, the best *real* use for obfuscated Perl code has to go to Gossamer Threads: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/jobs/index.htm "If you don't understand what this is doing without running it, don't bother applying";

    hehe, the siggy is just stupid show off stuff. It's over complicated to look ..er.. cool. It's nothing you couldn't achieve with a few lines of perl or PHP if I could use preg_split properly, lol.

    I agree with KapTin KiRk and Matt , I prefer to finish Perl then move into the 'easy' language PHP

    Me? Yes, I've written a small random image script in PHP. And used it for small header/footer things instead of SSI.

    I have a (cheap) shared account at OLM.net and they support mod_perl (on request). After IB3 is released I will get another account just for my boards and turn on mod_perl, for more room and bandwidth and so it doesn't mess with my own perl scripts which aren't mod_perl friendly

    Anyway, I'm out of this conversation, I love Ikonboard, love IB3 so far, and I love vB too (i moderate a few boards using vB).

    PHP vs. Perl, I prefer Perl myself because I just started learning it a few months ago (slowly) and don't want to switch over to PHP when im not done with Perl, they are very similar though and I've written a few miniscule PHP scripts.

    Matt, With a siggy like yours you've got no chance of convincing anyone they should attempt to learn Perl!

    I'd better clarify before this gets out of hand

    I wasn't saying that PHP is a bad language. I was just illustrating my point from my perspective. I've been coding perl for about 10 months and pretty much know 80% of it inside out. I found it frustrating that I couldn't write stuff like 'do_thing() if $var;' - it felt like I had to write it all long hand.

    Again, PHP seems over simplified from a perl coders point of view. To me it was confusing to see so many overlapping functions.

    Well I guess you could say that posix compatible regular expressions and perl compatible regular expression can do the same thing, even some of the string functions like str_replace() can do the same thing.

    Just because functions can be used to do the same thing doesn't mean they should be used in the same situation.

    If you take a glance through the PHP manual, there are a number of functions that duplicate each other. I can't think of any off the top of my head, but there are at least a few.

    My biggest problem with PHP is that it's oversimplified to the point where their are a thousand commands to do the same thing.
    There are heaps of functions, if what you say has some truth to it - how about a few examples ?
    what are these commands that do the same things ?

    I have nothing against perl either.
