Massyn has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
#!/fellow/monks.pl For many years now I've been coding a solution that I use to build database driven websites, the kind you would use to capture information in tables, and build workflow type application with. I'm not a big fan of perl modules, for the main reason that the ones I'm looking for are seldom loaded at my ISP (GoDaddy). Though many modules are available, I find myself rather rewriting a bunch of code instead of using a module.
For this particular application, I'm at the point where I'm prepared to ditch everything I've developed thus far, and settle for Perl modules that could do the trick. I would rather spend time extracting the modules into do ".." statements so I can just FTP the module along with my code.
Ok, so what's my question? My question is : What perl modules would you recommend for web based database driven applications? I would like to utilize security (authentication), logon with a username & password, ability to handle sessions, ability to generate HTML tables & forms, along with all the SQL necessary to make this work.
It does feel kind of sad to dump all my code, but like I said, I think it's time to make use of what's already there. Any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
