PLP is yet another Perl embedder, primarily for HTML documents. Unlike with other Perl embedders, there is no need to learn a meta-syntax or object model: one can just use the normal Perl constructs. PLP runs under mod_perl for speeds comparable to those of PHP, but can also be run as a CGI script.


The current version of PLP is 3.24: download it now!
(PLP 2 users: read PLP 2 to 3 to learn more about converting old PLP 2 scripts to PLP 3.)

Fast and mod_perl!

(April 9, 2002) I'm glad to announce that PLP finally works with mod_perl, and with it, speed is great! It is two to five (!!) times as fast as PHP with 500 iterations of the following simple script:
$a = 1;
while ($a < 400000) {
Now this is of course not a real-life situation, but a 250% speed gain is nice :)
(Yeah, I know, this site isn't fast, but that's because this server is very loaded)
