"ActiveState, the leading provider of Internet programming
software and services, won the best programming tool award for
ActivePerl 5.6 in the annual WebTechniques Web Tools Award.
ActivePerl is ActiveState's free binary distribution of Perl.
WebTechniques' readers were most impressed with ActivePerl's
ability to develop within an ASP environment and still have access
to what made Perl popular in the first place: pattern matching and
regular expressions, the Perl built-in functions, and a vast

"The Web Tools Awards recognize the most innovative proprietary
and open source products used in every stage of the Web development
and maintenance process: strategy, design, programming, and
infrastructure. The judges felt ActivePerl managed to convince Perl
developers to begin building sites with Active Server Pages."
