I'd usually choose Perl for one huge reason: the code, if well written, can always run either on Windows or Linux. Even if we're talking about ASP applications (once I deployed on Linux a site application written in Perl/ASP on a NT4 box). What I really can't understand is why Perl is not more widely used, once it's far more productive than Java, for instance, it's not property of anyone and it's so feature rich! Maybe it's the lack of marketing effort (marketing seems to be everything in these days...).
