Well, mine isnīt in Perl, C/C++, etc. but I like it ;-) It is written in JavaScript (anybody who says ECMAScript? ;-) and is a generic HTML form validator which lets HTML designers use nothing except their HTML skills to create forms that validate themselves.

The idea is to use the utility of user-defined-HTML-attributes-on-the-fly and thus get rid of tackling with JScript at all.

The idea is explained (only in Turkish, if anybody is interested I can translate it into English) here: Generic HTML Form Validation You can download the JS package and the sample web page. It is compatible with Mozilla, Netscape, Internet Explorer. The difference between this system and the others is that they need the programmer/designer to modify the JavaScript in one way or the other.

I'm sure Perl has got nice solutions to this frequently encountered problem but in case you donīt use Perl in every Internet project, I think this tool can help you in a valuable way ;-)

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.
