Maybe now would be a good time to hype mod_dtcl (libapache-mod-dtcl).
It works with 1.3.1 last time I checked.
Basically, my design goals in writing it were similiar to those of
PHP, but to use an existing language. I chose Tcl because of the ease
with which it is integrated with C, and its relative simplicity for
new users. Mod_dtcl, like PHP, can be tightly integrated with HTML (
if ... (some html) ... else ... (more html) ...
and other neat things like that... It is also, IMO, relatively easy
to learn, as it is based on a language for which many books have been
written, and for which many modules exist.
Unlike mod_perl, mod_dtcl does not attempt to sink its scripty claws
deep within the server;-) Mod_perl really gives you the ability to do
all kinds of things to the server with Perl. While that is all well
and good, most people just want to do a bit of dynamic content, and
mod_perl is probably not as suitable for this...
Mod_dtcl is alpha software, and thus may change, but I'm really hoping
to get some developer type people to pound and hack on it...:-)
