# Line 20-24 my $year = $cgi->param('year') ? encode_entities($cgi->param('year +'), '<>"') : ''; my $media = $cgi->param('media') ? encode_entities($cgi->param('medi +a'), '<>"') : ''; my $genre = $cgi->param('genre') ? encode_entities($cgi->param('genr +e'), '<>"') : ''; my $source = $cgi->param('source') ? encode_entities($cgi->param('sour +ce'), '<>"') : ''; my $title = $cgi->param('title') ? encode_entities($cgi->param('titl +e'), '<>"') : '';
# How I'da dunnit: my %param = map { $cgi->param($_) ? ($_ => encode_entities($cgi->param($_), '')) : () } qw(year media genre source title);
# Line 33-39: if ( $year || $media || $genre || $source || $title ) { my @selections; push @selections, qq($title) if $title; push @selections, qq($year) if $year; push @selections, qq($media) if $media; push @selections, qq($genre) if $genre; push @selections, qq($source) if $source; ...

As for verything from line 82 onward, i.e. the whole page(...) thing, I'd look into a templating system. Template Toolkit follows the Perl philosophy (easy things easy, hard things possible) pretty neatly in my opinion.

[Corion]: thezip: start "some title" path\to\that\ application, but that will open another console window
[Corion]: thezip: If you want to confuse your users, use system(1, "that\\command" );, which will make Perl launch it in the background
[Corion]: That will keep the console window open even though the user can't type into it anymore
[thezip]: So I have a script that generates a log file. After script completion, I want tohave VIM open this logfile.
[thezip]: i don't get the command line "back" until I close VIM. No what I want to happen...
[thezip]: I currently don't have access to CYGWIN, else I'd just do a tail -f on the logfile.
