Post your question to a community of 469,148 developers. It's quick & easy.

PHP or Perl?

As part of my own learning mysql project I'm planning to build
databases for all my books and DVD's. Stephen Hawking is probably
a better typist than I am so I plan to use barcodes to get the info
,taking the information from various web sites.

People tell me that PHP is THE way to do database work with mysql.
The thing is, I'm familiar with Perl and it has all kinds of neat
string manipulation stuff and LWP.

Does PHP have comprable libraries (especially LWP) and how difficult
is it to move from Perl.

I hope I don't start a relegious war here I just want some advice.
