( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi Everyone, thanks for the feedback. It really sounds like CGI.pm is what I should be using. However, let me provide some more details of my task, and perhaps it will make more sense. 1. Build an array of files in a directory 2. print the array of files 3. modify the print so it displays links to them 4. Modify this cgi program so it allows parameters to be passed and displayed. This is apparently where I must use cgi-lib.pl. I went to the home page of cgi-lib.pl and from the example I saw there, I figured that cgi-lib.pl is a library with a bunch of sub routines that can help me get input. Sorry for such elementary questions. I'm new to programming and perl. Is there a book besides the llama that you guys can recommend for a beginner? Thanks a bunch! John
