in thread What's the best Perl CMS?

I've tried to install WebAPP V1.0 SE, the free version from

It stinks! Very ancient perl style. eg embedded html, no sub parameter declarations, few comments on tricky regexs etc.

The install obviously never been not tested on a Unix box. File permissions AWOL, ^M terminating the #! /use/bin/perl line, no taint switches, self modifying code writes to perl .cgi scripts, renames .bin files to .zip then tries to unzip them. Stuff that gets unziped has directories which the setup tries to rename... Need I go on?

This bold claim from their website: "Thanks God Web-APP CMS is NOT made in PHP"... LOL It's a crackers paradise.

PHP is broken, but it takes something better than this to put perl back on the CMS map.
