I agree....NT was never meant to run CGI or PERL, but that's not what I'm
talking about. I'm talking about mod-perl. An apache module for Unix servers
that optimizes perl code. There is also something called DBI which lets you
talking to databases with much the same syntax as ASP (or so I've read.)
I've also heard that ASP is faster than mod-perl.

At the present, I would far prefer ASP as perl is a pain on IIS and I would
prefer not to run it at this time. Since it would the be an application
server, the ASP type pages would be far more efficient on the the server
