( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
I am using
print $q->checkbox_group ( -name=>'predefined', -values=>@predefined, );
to print a list of checkboxes.
However, it is mushing everything on to one line, and I now it is designed to act like that but it is really ugly.
The array elements are strings.
The only way I could think of is to change $, to "<br>\n"
Is there a better way? (without adding junk to the end of the elements themselves or the obvious route of not using OO CGI.pm)

Also, the funny part, the html that CGI.pm is outputing looks like this:
<input type="text" name="something" size="15" maxlength="15" /> <input type="checkbox" name="predefined" value="a line of text." />a l +ine of text <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Preview" /> <input type="hidden" name=".cgifields" value="predefined" />
I have never seen CGI.pm end every form field with />
And why is it creating this hidden field?
This is the latest version of CGI.pm from cpan.
I think.. no, it is what came bundled with the perl5.6.1 code.... 2.752 I guess that is.
Is this new in the latest CGI.pm code because I have not had this happen before.
...or is it just me? Don't be afraid to tell me if you think I'm crazy.
