cold fusion vs. Perl (Tom never did this one <g>)

er, wierd question.

I know someone that uses cold fusion at work and seems to've run up against
a wall: he finds himself churning out scripts four plus times the length
of the file he's rendering.  He wants to know if there's a better way.

He's pretty much constrained to NT + IIS.

I try to explain Perl's concision, its idioms... any clues on how I might
drive it home?  I'm not a CF programmer, maybe one of you has more insight
into how I might illustrate Perl's advantages over CF's embedded directives.
