wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hey guys I have a summer project to do. My employer wants this snazzy webpage of the status of the printers in my computer lab.
I can run a command called "sudo printstatus" in unix under admin and it shows me the status of the printers in a text file.
Now does anyone know how to make a simple program (or even have a simple program) that can take the input from the a command into a log file, and make that file readable by html (because i want to put the status on a web page) ??
any suggestions... any?
Thanks for your time.
