Can you properly integrate PHP and Perl?

I'm well familiar with both PHP and Perl

Let's say you've written, or have access to, a nice set of PHP modules or
functions which allow you to write general applications very quickly.
(As an example, to quickly bring up general and uniform web pages which
can be used to quickly enter data into a back-end database).

Now you switch companies and their environment uses entirely Perl.
Obviously, people there have been writing their own Perl modules there
for years which are used to interface to the various databases and
other systems they have there.

Is there anything that allows one to 'mix' Perl and PHP in the same
subroutines, etc, and thus allowing one to use whichever is more
appropriate for each subtask?

Something perhaps like
<?php
$phpvariable=<? perl &perlsubroutine ('a',34) ?> ;
?>
or even vice versa I guess.

Heh :-)
I'm almost certain that I'm being totally delusional here, but I thought
I'd ask - you never know, some third-party product might exist to do
this.

I guess I'm going to have to do it the hard way, and try to, say, have
Perl as the front-end, and have it use system() or `` (backticks) to
try to call any of my back-end PHP programs as necessary?

For things that do not require exchanging data between two groups
of scripts, this may actually work quite well. If you do need the
exchange, you might want to write a SOAP-based interface between
the two groups, so that they can call each other at will. You will
end up with two Web services, one with a Perl-based provider, which
PHP scripts will call, and the other with a PHP-based provider, which
Perl scripts will call. There may be a performance penalty though...

Cheers,

Hi there, I recently started writing perl and i like it more and more. Syntax is something you can easily learn from a book and then just do it. You will get better as you go. But i seem to get stuck on the best way to setup an application. I've read about the perl modules and how to write your own. Does one write a lot of modules and call them from the main.pl or should

Basically, I've a JS function called ValidateForm(), which returns true or false and controls if the form submits. When I integrate this with .NET validators, the .NET always adds it's own call to a function to the end of the form onSubmit script. So if my function returns false, .NETs function is still called and when it returns true will basically render my code pointless. I'm not entirely sure of the best way to integrate custom

I might have found a problem with how preg_match works though I'm not sure. Lets say you have a regular expression that you want to match a string of numbers. You might write the code like this: preg_match( '/^+$/', $TestString ); OK everything seems fine. However, did you know if you pass the following to preg_match: "12345\n" it will return that a match occurred?!? Even though the newline is not a valid character in our regular...
