Dynamic web pages (interactive table)by gnu@perl (Pilgrim)
|on Oct 17, 2002 at 14:54 UTC||Need Help??|
gnu@perl has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have a web server that creates dynamic web pages, even the main page is dynamic. Each page is created on the fly using perl.
All works fine, but what I would like to do is (this is a little off topic) create an interactive table. Much like using frames where you would have a frame on the left with menu items that would update the frame on the right with the requested document.
The information in the cells is going to be kept in a HoH or AoA or whatever fits my fancy at the moment.
I wish to do this with tables instead of frames. Where clicking on a link in one cell updates the contents of another cell. I am fairly new to HTML and don't know a lot. I can make pages, links etc, but no advanced stuff. I don't know any HTML scripting langs, but am not against learning them, just haven't gotten around to doing it.
Is this something that can be done or do I have to use frames?
