Q&A  > database programming


Description:

I need to write a simple frontend for management of the contents of a database. I've written several before for various other databases here at work, and I'm tired of writing almost the exact same code time after time. Is there a module out there that can generate the code for HTML forms from a database table?

A quick search of CPAN came up with DBIx::CGI which looks like it might do what you want.

There are several Perl solutions for this. WDBI is a nice package; I can't seem to reach its home page right now, but it is cached at HotScripts.
