in reply to Creating a Directory Site

My take on what you're after is link management, hopefully in some administratable data store, with a directory-like, dynamic display (if it's easy and has a management interface of some kind).

Unless you feel you just have to recreate it, I thought some of these links might help. AFAIK, each of these is written in Perl. Also, there'll be enough coding to go around in implementing anything like this into a web site, so maybe it's a good thing to use something like these since they're complete (more or less)...

  • Links, shareware, free to non-commercial use, Here.

  • Many others are listed here. However, look closely and make careful choices.

  • Some of these have free versions that often have limited functionality (which may be all you need), and provide paid upgrades. Here's an example. (I don't know this product, just an example)

  • Open source things like this at sourceforge (do your own testing.)
Just because something shows a purchase price, doesn't mean that's true. Plus, they may have free versions, or the product is free for not-for-profit use. Don't by shy; Ask.

[stevieb]: atcroft: "Make both hands into fists..."... is something my Ma taught me in our native lang, but I was to ignorant and young to pay attention. Thanks for that :)
[atcroft]: stevieb: Sad to say that I only recently learned that particular trick, but I have since found it very useful.... :)
[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
[atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
