Re: Writing a web message board from scratch
in thread Writing a web message board from scratch
For better or worse the decision has already been made to roll-our-own. There are a few details that we need control of for our specific application and I'm sure it would be easier to do it from scratch rather than adapting existing code to it.
Let's assume that for some reason you have to write it from scratch and re-using an existing "web message board" codebase is not an option - all you can use is well-tested CPAN modules like DBI and CGI.pm etc.
How do you do it?
