in reply to Tables with Cgi.pm

If you supply an arrayref to CGI's tr method, it will take each element inside that arrayref to be a distinct row, so you need to remove the [ and ]...

print $query->table( $query->Tr( $query->td({width=>"15%"}, "1"), $query->td( "2"), ), );

The reason for this is so that you can build rows iteratively, and later pass them to tr and have it (ymmv) Do The Right Thing(tm)...

my @rows; foreach my $no (qw( one two three )) { push @rows, $query->td( $no ); } print $query->table( $query->Tr( \@rows ) );

    --k.

    Or, replace the comma in the anonymous array with a concentation operattor '.' . That way, both td()s will comprise one "element" in the array, thus, one table row with two columns. (Here I go learning something as I post again - imagine that.)

[marinersk]: Corion This DBA wants to smack others who like putting whitespace in column names.
[marinersk]: s/smack/whap/;
[talexb]: Wow, what hilariously bad form.
[SuicideJunkie]: Just wait; someday soon, you'll be given a DB with unicode emojis in the column names.
[Corion]: marinersk: Well, I have done select statements like select sum(foo) as "Total Amount", ..., but to have a table like that makes me shudder
[Corion]: SuicideJunkie: :-D
[marinersk]: SuicideJunkie LOL
[choroba]: Woohoo! Fixed a test that hasn't run for 3 years.
[marinersk]: Corion Yes, sometimes whitespace in column headers is acceptable, but I still consider it be less than desireable if that query might get revectored for an ETL-esque process...
[marinersk]: choroba++
