"I have developed shopping carts in the past, but they have always been for a specific product line, and therefore not very flexible. I prefer
to use PHP and PostgreSQL. The Zelerate AllCommerce software can create a flexible, database-independent solution, using only Perl.
AllCommerce provides more than just a shopping cart; it offers inventory control, order tracking, site management, and complete
Web-based management support for your e-commerce site." Story at LinuxWorld.
