    I worked with Perl for more than 5 years now and I almost never program for the web. Perl is used in many more environments than CGI.

    Can I suggest to change the name to Perl?

    How do I do my code to look like Perl? After looking in the website seams to be a good idea to set it as PHP.

    Thanks
    Marcos

    I have no idea about the language and as a consensus it was named as PER-CGI but I am working on your request and soon will have something like the one you suggested.

    I could not get this?

    PERL-CGI name was given to mean PERL and / or CGI but if you think that does mean restricting the domain of PERL we have no problem in making it to PERL (Which in turn means PERL with and without CGI)

    Notice that CGI can be done with any programing language. I have already done it with C/C++, Prolog and Perl. They are different things, so it's possible to have 2 forums.

    As of now we will have only one forums but when we have more concrete things we will have the CGI forums. Now all the PERL-CGI forums will be renamed to PERL forums and when the task is complete I will make a post here for you to see.

    Thanks for the info.

    To post Perl code on the forums with syntax highlighting put your code between [ code=perl ] <your code> [ /code ] without spaces in the special tags!

    I would set the Perl under Programming. Is +- correct to set PHP (can be defined as a Perl version to the net ;) ) inside the "Web Development" since is where is mostly used, but this is not the case of the Perl.
