View as plain text  
Perl does offer a more robust and perhaps a better long term solution.

Go to for details on the mod_perl API.

And, of course there is the excellent Perl DBI  and DBD module combination.

You should have started with the superb website first!

Good luck,


By they way, PHP would be fine for your intranet should you make that choice. Just make
it an informed choice.
