The Power of Perl

Q1:Perl seems to be the server-side scripting language of choice for so many people. Why does this continue to hold true despite the influx of other server-side technologies?
A1: Perl is a very powerful language that also is available on just about every platform imaginable, so you can use it whether your server is of the Unix or Windows variety—as long as the systems administrator has it installed and enabled.

With an amazing and dedicated (if not downright fanatic) fan base, Perl resources abound. Perl is an open-source language, meaning that it is completely free. This, combined with its power and flexibility, make it an extremely attractive choice for server-side scripting.
