Username Password Help
I discussed it with a friend of mine and he mentioned PHP. I looked at a few PHP books and just couldn't handle PHP, even though it is quite similar to C++. Next I thought PERL. I haven't used PERL in ages, so I'm gonna dig out some old books of mine and refresh myself on PERL programming.
I need some input on what I should do. Use PERL to code up a CGI? Or use PHP? I think i'd feel more comfortable with PERL. Although I'm sure PHP has more security capabilities. I'd appreciate some input.
P.S. The usernames and passwords will be on the server on a regular file. So i'll have to open a text file and search for the username and password matches that way. I have no other database. Thanks for your help and I apologize for such a long post.

If you are comfortable with Perl, then use perl. PHP can do the job, a lot more hosting companies support PHP than do perl, but it may take some time to learn, which you may or may not have..
