in thread Stunnix Perl Web Server - a platform for portable browser-based applications

I always thought that this would be a good way of writing apps, but after I wrote mine I realised... nah. It's a bit too clunky. It needs a strong widget command language. Some of this promised .NET stuff looks interesting.

    What I've found is that using PerlScript as your events language instead of JavaScript makes things a lot nicer. Granted, you don't get to register new events, but it's still really nice. (You need an ActiveX-enabled browser, but that's usually available.)

    I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested

    For cases of moderate complexity it's enough to use basic type of form controls HTML provides. For more complex ones - it will be possible to write complex widgets (since .NET is able to).
