||VBScript or Perl?|
Response to: More considerations
1) I definitely would not take the formating functions of VBScript as a strong point. They are almost useless. Using the system locale specific rules is quite often a bad idea. Especialy for web based projects and for log files. I would really love to get logfiles with differently formated dates from different computers.
But you are right, it's a surprise there is at least this.
