Perl

+ - BBC creates 'Perl on Rails' 2

Submitted by Bogtha
Bogtha (906264) writes "Long-time users of Perl for their public websites, and having successfully used Ruby on Rails for internal websites, the BBC have fused the two by creating a 'Perl on Rails' that has the advantages of rapid development that Rails brings, while performing well enough to be used for the Beeb's high-traffic public websites. This is already powering one of their websites, and is set to be used in the controversial iPlayer project as well."

  • I thought it was called "Catalyst."

    Seriously, though, what the hell can their MVC framework do that Catalyst can't do a hell of a lot better?

    So what OS is this run off? Presumably MS Win XP?

    Isn't it weird how their headers say Red Hat and Apache 2 but their directors say there are only 200 linux users in the UK [that's hyperbole] ... everyone who uses that site is a linux user.

Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust.
