[tpm] Why perl lost steam...

I'd contend that building a Web app in Groovy on Grails is where beginners
should start.

Grails is one (not several competing) Web Framework, Groovy is Java and J2EE
compliant, yet a scripting language with closures and implicit parallel
programming support. Together they give you scripting access to all the J2EE
components developed over the past decade while hiding the crappy
verboseness of XML and Java.

Building a Web App? As much I know and like Perl I wouldn't start a new Web
App in one.
