I think it's more of a language preference/advocacy question.
I find PHP easier to knock up quick web/SQL pages, but that doesn't
mean it's better.. and I've done enough to know the flaws in PHP.
That said, I find CGI to be rather 'old hat' now, if you want to do
perl then mod_perl would probably be the best way.
Whichever language, using a template engine to separate the
code+content is recommended for anything medium to big in size IMO.
Like I say, more of an advocacy question. :)
