in reply to How many different programming languages have you programmed in within the last month?

I make it my policy to learn a new programming language every month or two! This month it is PHP. If I didn't know perl I'd be really excited about it, but PHP is like perl without all the exciting bits.

The good thing about PHP is the ISAPI implementations of it which run as well as mod_perl or perhaps better but without any of the hassle of mod_perl (like conflicting name spaces, my variable hassle, working out exactly when mod_perl will reload your code etc...)

Don't misunderstand me though, I still think perl rocks! mod_perl is brilliant too, just a little quirky ;-)
