in thread Web interface and index.pl separated?

First of all thnk you for your time, willing and effort to help me help myself :-)

You are right i want to do things but i dont know how to do them, so in this particular thread i opened considering what you are telling me i now have to ask this:

Thank you but it is still complicated. In your opinion whats the easiest way of creating a Perl CGI Webpage and why?

Perl + cgi.pm ? (the way i have it now)
Perl + Dreamweaver ?
Perl + Style Sheets ?
Iam really trying to fugure out the easiest method for implementing this.

cgi.pm is ok but it needs a lot of width, height, border, size, font-family and stuff if you ahve it in a a index.pl that messes the whole page up.

    What I do is this:
    • For reading parameters sent to me (either from a form or on the URL), I use CGI.
    • When generating HTML to send back, I use HTML::Template. You can also use Template Toolkit or any number of other excellent templating modules.
    • Within my templates, I use CSS stylesheets as well as Javascript files, as appropriate.

    Others have used Dreamweaver and similar products to maintain their templates and CSS files, but I have not done this.

      Can i use Dreamweaver to pass values to variables in the html i produce with it?
        Do you even understand the question you're asking? Go away and read, then come back and ask.
