Tnx.nl:
PHP in Contrast to Perl
May 22, 2006 @ 06:21:33

As long as people "choose sides" when it comes to programming languages, there will always be articles like this to compare them. This time, it's a look at PHP versus another much-loved language, Perl.

The article takes a look at several different topics under this one umbrella, including:

  • Arguments and return values are extremely inconsistent
  • PHP has inconsistent function naming
  • PHP has no lexical scope
  • PHP has too many functions in the core

Obviously, they all seem to take a negative slant on PHP, but they do provide some content under each of the headings to back up their claims. They break out the contents of each of these examples to make comparison of Perl's and PHP's similar functionality easier. At the end, they also provide links to other resources and other posters illustrating some of the points they've shown.
