in reply to Yet Another Stupid CGI Question
I too am learning CGI... it's a little crazy at times, but it certainly can do some really neat stuff. I'm not certain exactly what you are asking. When I worked with CGI, I had trouble outputing complex tables, so I usually ended up printing raw HTML. I ended up using CGI to handle the parameters, and then generated any HTML tags myself.
To clarify a little, you are trying to use the tr and td subs with the print function to generate a complex table? And you are wondering how to get it to work?
