( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

With regular apps, you can always use certain keystrokes to reach some goal, and thus, speeding up the use of the app tremendously. I don't see how you could build that into a website

Web apps tend to be simple enough that hot keys usually don't make sense. If your web app isn't simple, it probably shouldn't be a web app (HTML doesn't handle complexity well).

Ain't it lovely to pipe certain output to the next app?

Piping is just a means for programs to share data with each other. In a web app, the sharing is usually done by an RDBMS. If you really want to use a pipe, use wget or lynx -source to get the page printed to STDOUT. Certainly, this is far more likely to work than attempting to pipe a traditional GUI program.

Back button can annoy ...

Yup, that's a problem.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.
