depends on what you wanna do with perl. perl for general system admin is
still real in. perl for small cgi scripts is in, but u don't write a dynamic
site using perl.. that is suicide. u can use mod perl though and that works,
but for dynamic sites keep away from perl. php, JSP/java servlets/ejb,
coldfusion and asp on win2k/iis5 are what u wud normally use to write
dynamic sites. u can also use nsapi/isapi/mod_perl for making dynamic

not really. right now asp.net and jsp/ejb is the in thing.. (i know this is
a linux list, but..) and another thing is that if u keep running after the
in thing, don't think that learning the tech of the moment will be ok..

for small quick and diry jobs like form submissions, etc perl is still the
best bet. for anything more complex use something else!
