( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm new to Perl, and I was hoping to get some ideas on webpage logins using Perl. I want users to be able to log in to make changes to an online journal. My thought was that the login screen would pass the users name and password to some sort of user validation script, that would check the database online, and if they pass the check, it would write their username, IP, and login time into a log file. Every page after that would check the log file to see if that IP is valid to edit the page, and to see if they haven't timed out. Am I on the right track here? I'd really like to hear about what others have done in this situation.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
