Did you not see my attempt at this problem:
DBIx::XHTML_Table? You can even use that module
to create a "Spreadsheet CGI". However, mine is more tied to
DBI ... but you can always pass the constructor an AoA without needing a database.
in reply to RFC: CGI::Tables
This does make me wonder if there should be a base class that both of our modules could use ... on another note, i
would like to see your module replace HTML::Table,
which i really don't care for. The author actually tries to
handle each attribute individually instead of generically
allowing attributes to 'handle themselves' ...
Anyhoo, check out my module ... there are some neat features
you are welcome to steal. :) (like rotating attributes and
callbacks for each cell)
Oh yeah, i almost forgot -- if you want to investigate the
HTML::Template solution, be sure and check out my
Dynamic HTML::Template Database Template. Again, it was designed to be generic and to
be used with a database, but you can always modify it to fit
your specific needs.
