Is Ruby is better than Perl?

Hi Guys,

i just want to know Is Ruby is better than Perl?If yes Who?If No
Y?Please let me know

      Thanks in Advance.

S.S

In what sense?

Are you speaking in terms of backend processing?

If that’s a yes, I have worked with perl for awhile and it thrives in
data migrations, billing systems, invoice generation and so forth. Its
regular
expression engine does win a lot of approval.

For web development, there is a pretty good framework that Perl has
which is called Catalyst. Used it and found it was good but rails does
have some very good points.

Is one pizza joint better than another? Guess it comes down to
personal preference, and I prefer Ruby (as will most people on this
RUBY on rails list). Every language has its merits and its
shortcomings. Syntaxwise for me, Ruby wins the fight easily,
performancewise, Perl will probably be faster, but Ruby has never been
a hurdle for me. Ruby and Rails make me more productive, and that’s
what counts for me in the end.

Best regards

i think you’re opening up a can of worms here.
Agreeing with one of the responses, there’s merits in both.
If you’re a student who has never touched perl or ruby, pick them up
and
be the judge.

The best tools for the best job depends on the carpenter.

If you are looking for a definitive answer on which is the better
language for your project, you won’t get it. This question has been
posted and answered several times all over the net, so do some research:

http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=ruby+versus+perl

They both are perfectly capable of doing backend processing, web
development and they both have packages and frameworks to help you
with. Look around, find which one suits your style of programming
better and go for it.

Yes. Perl is not a bad language by any means, but Ruby blows it out of
the water.

If yes Who?If No
Y?Please let me know

Ruby’s expressivity and object model make it far more powerful than most
other languages…

      Thanks in Advance.
