    Perfect timing. I was just about to write a rather complex web application. How does this (or PHP in general) compare to, say, PERL in the execution speed, memory usage, and code manageability aspects? I'm sure I can get some quality, unbiased opinions here on the topic.

    Thanks in Advance!

    If the community wants to improve PHP they could start with making the function, class and method names case sensitive. For some unknown reason the powers behind PHP have chosen not fix this.

    They are by definition antisocial, expect everything to revolve around them and don’t want you to use just pieces of them.

    Give us just a nice set of libraries. That’s it.
    Let us choose what parts to use, what parts to get from other libraries, and what not to use at all.

    Frameworks are like having to buy a bundle offer at the supermarket, when all you need is one part of it, and then at home also noticing that the parts are not playing nice with everything else.

    But I hope the craze will be over soon, just like the Flash intro craze, the Java Applet craze, etc.

    If we used what was everywhere everyone would be developing websites in .NET to deploy on their Windows intranet. But it's a lot easier to be sarcastic than have a point other than "lol nobody uses Rails" (as if that were even close to true).
