    In traditional programming lingo, a *script* is a short piece of code
    written in a programming language.  As of version 2.3, Zope now comes
    with two kinds of script objects: one that lets you write scripts in

       Any plans for PHP?

       No plans from the publisher (Zope Corp) as of now, but several community members have made products which
       allow you to manage your PHP scripts in Zope:

       I would like to see an extension to this section which shows how one uses Perl scripts from within Zope. I am
       a <I>newbie</I> so forgive me if I missed something obvious. From my perspective, as an individual who has
       started learning Zope, it appears as though Perl scripting ability needs to be added as a product in addition
       to the default installation. This may only be a caveat associated with NT as I have not yet tried a Unix
       based installation. In either case I feel it would be helpful to point out any issues or potential
       misunderstandings regarding this. As an out of band comment, I would like to say that this document seems to
       switch styles between aiming at "I've never used a computer before" users and "I'm already knee deep in this
       realm, just give me the buzzwords and the pointers" users.

       I'd like to side with the "out of band comment" above, and suggest that the document focus on the "I've never
       used Zope or any other Content Management System" users.
