Used to do very basic Perl at uni, on a unix box, not touched it since then - and probably take me a while to write anything in it now.

Not used anything other than ASP on an NT server, cos I've seen what running hundreds of out-of-process scripts does to them.

Read the following for more info:

It's long, but it gets there in the end...

As for power, I can do everything I want to using it, and those things it doesn't directly support, I write a server-side Activex dll (v. easy in vb5/6) and call that from the script.
