The biggest advantage of PHP over P E R L is that PHP was designed for scripting for the web where P E R L was designed to do a lot more and can because of this get very complicated. The flexibility / complexity of P E R L makes it easier to write code that another author / coder has a hard time reading. PHP has a less confusing and stricter format without losing flexibility. PHP is easier to integrate into existing HTML than P E R L. PHP has pretty much all the ‘good’ functionality of P E R L: constructs, syntax and so on, without making it as complicated as P E R L can be. P E R L is a very tried and true language, it’s been around since the late eighties, but PHP is maturing very quickly.
