Yes, I think this is the place because it is very simple and plain.

Why strange ;) I think PHP is no worse than Perl. I think the choice
of scripting language for tools is up to the developer. I don't see
why bash or perl is better than php. At least php-cli is very easy to
be installed (just one yum command) and does not cause the threat to
the system security. Of course not all servers has it, but I prefer
PHP scripts because they are much easy to read and understand
comparing to Perl and Bash especially for novice users (I think
professionals have their own scripts for everything :) ).

:) Ok, thank you ;)

Ok, I will!
