Because that poster likes Python.

They're both wrong, of course.  Perl is always the correct language to use  :D

(In case anyone mistakes the above for a serious remark, it hardly matters 
what scripting language you use as long as it has an AGI library.  PHP has 
outgrown powering web pages and is now a fully-fledged scripting language.  Use 
whatever you feel comfortable with and if you don't feel comfortable with it, 
use something else; or at least, abstract out the scariest parts.  You don't 
get prizes depending on the language you use, at least not in the parts of the 
real world I've lived in.)


Answers come *after* questions.
