Default Which one is best perl or javascript?

well guys, just need tour suggestions to make it clear for me, about the best scripting language between the two, Perl or Javascript. I just have to develop a website and there is the option for me using any one from the two. So, kindly tell about your opinion.

You can not really compare tehs elanguages as they are for different purposes. Javascript is mostly used as programming language in the web browser while Perl is a scripting langauge that is used on the server to generate pages or to create meintenance scripts for system administration.

Okay, this is the issue where I was missing to make the differences. Well, now you have made my concepts totally good regarding these two scripting languages, I can decide which one to choose... finally thanks for your great reply.

I also think that we can't compare these languages because they are used in different ways and for different goals.

It's true, but as for me javascript offers more opportunities than perl.
