this is fun: i'm porting BML to run on top of PHP instead of Perl ... when this is done I should be able to start converting a lot of the BML on my site to PHP and still retain the templating system.... I have to use PHP for my summer job, so I figured while I learn it I might as well do something with it.

Are you finding that you like PHP any better than Perl?

Re:

I like NOTHING more than Perl. C++ is close ... but I still prefer Perl.

Yeah Perl!

Yeah, right on! Nothing beats perl (although I must admit that I'm moving most of my stuff to PHP right now for speed reasons).

Re: Yeah Perl!

PHP is easier to get working fast than Perl, I admit, but Perl can still be very fast if you mod_perl or FastCGI setup well.

Re: Yeah Perl!

Yeah, I'd like to be using mod_perl, but unfortunately I still have my stuff hosted on an ISP that won't let me do anything fun. PHP is as close as I can get for now... But next year I'll have my own server and a constant connection to the Internet, so I can run whatever I need.

a suggestion

Here's my suggestion:

AOLServer using enbedded TCL (called ADPs in AOLserver).

Would be a lot faster.

Re: a suggestion

I looked at that several years ago because Philip Greenspun recommends it so much, but for this project I have to use PHP...

Re: a suggestion

Oh.. and database connections with AOLserver is cake.

There's a Sybase and Postgres Driver too.

Re: a suggestion


Here, check this out. LinuxWorld's article on AOLserver

Performance with Dynamic pages
Very high performance for serving script-
and database-backed sites, even when setup and run by novices.



Also, check out the sidebar article AOLserver vs. Apache

Life would be complete!!

BML AND PHP?!?! Damn! Just add in the ability to make Frozen Margaritas and my life will be complete.

Seriously... I consider myself very knowledgeable of all things PHP, so if you need any help, let me know.

If you want a copy, email me in a week or so, things should be smooth by then.
