This, of course, depends on your situation but perl DBI is quite well 
documented and fairly easy to use and Perl, as a language, is not that 
strange and comparable with php (if you exclude the OOP-parts, avoid OOP 
in Perl). As a text processing language, Perl is better than all others 
I have seen and vastly superior to php (not that php is exactly bad, 
perl is just much better).

But there is, of course, a learning curve.

Just saying......
