Q&A  > CGI programming


Description:

I am curious as to know how search engines for example Altavista can display results on multiple pages. From what I already know, this code will display results on the set number.
@results = $results; $results_to_Show = 10; for ($x=0; $x < $results_to_show; $++) { print "$results[$x]"; }
This is all that I know for now but, How can I display the next set of 10 results?

Also: How can I display results in this form: ' Result pages: 12345 next>> '

thanks for your support,

Answer: Search results on multiple pages.

Check out HTML::Pager from your local CPAN mirror.

From the HTML::Pager documentation:

DESCRIPTION

This module handles the paging of data coming from an arbitrary source and being displayed using HTML::Template and CGI.pm. It provides an interface to pages of data similar to many well-known sites, like altavista.digital.com or www.google.com.

This module uses HTML::Template to do all its HTML generation. While it is possible to use this module without directly using HTML::Template, it's not very useful. Modification of the look-and-feel as well as the functionality of the resulting HTML should all be done through HTML::Template objects. Take a look at HTML::Template for more info.
