Probably both. I only know PHP, but them I'm a
manager, so my job description no longer involves

IMO, you might find more people knowing perl, as it
has a longer history than PHP.

Now, according to the TPCI rankings ( ), however, PHP is right
ahead of perl in terms of popularity.

According to one leading job search engine - which I
find a decent indicator of needs - there are 4748 perl
jobs available and only 1229 PHP jobs.

Of course, there are also 14,673 Java jobs available.
