( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I was thinking of something like this:

URL a user enters:

http://your_server/page1.html

mod_perl maps this into:

http://your_server/cgi-bin/myscript.pl?temp=page1.html

or even:

http://your_server/cgi-bin/myscript.pl/page1

(this is how it will look if you use CGI::Application. I suggest get this working first, then add a .htaccess file in your cgi-bin directory to add the mod_perl mod_rewrite stuff afterwords.)

The script reads in template "page1.html", figures out the counter value, inserts it, and displays the page.

All the template files should be in a special directory, not under the document root, so there's no way a user can point their browser to the "real" page1.html.

update: corrected typo

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.
