Pardon me, but the code seems to be a work of a rookie 'hacker wannabe'.

This shows both from the code itself (to mention a few points, your methods -- which are nothing but a poor remake of CGI -- to process cookies are simply not adequate) and the language form used. Spelling 'through' as 'thru' is simply wrong and perceived as a poor gesture. Also, is there anything about your use of the word 'Uber'?

Don't take me wrong, but I can't even start to think of your code as being a serious attempt at anything other than 'l33t' hacker-dom.

For one, you should have at least refrained from reinventing the wheel and use these excellent modules already written eons ago and thoroughly tested by multitude current and past users:
  • HTML::Template
  • CGI
At least this would have given me the impression that you have some knowledge of decent Perl tools and therefore is not a rookie.

UPDATE: Oops, pardon my mentioning of 'work of a 13-year old ...'. as particle kindly pointed out, this wasn't entirely appropriate. (Besides, I too started out programming at a very young age; I'm also sure there are some brilliant young coders out there who I personally know and appreciate their efforts)

UPDATE 1: In reply to UberDragon13's responce.. Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you. Certainly, I'll be more than willing to help with whatever questions you might have. I think proper place for your code would rather be in the discussion forums. By posting your code here, I assumed you were willing to expose it to fair criticism. Also, again, the language you've used in your comments etc. wasn't particularly mature. However, this is a mute point anyways ;).
