in reply to popup_menu attributes

update: bah, I misread

Hi. Its a good idea to read the manual, which shows this

%labels = ('eenie'=>'your first choice', 'meenie'=>'your second choice', 'minie'=>'your third choice'); %attributes = ('eenie'=>{'class'=>'class of first choice'}); print popup_menu('menu_name', ['eenie','meenie','minie'], 'meenie',\%labels,\%attributes);
which will print
<select name="menu_name" tabindex="1"> <option class="class of first choice" value="eenie">your first choice< +/option> <option selected="selected" value="meenie">your second choice</option> <option value="minie">your third choice</option> </select>
You see %attributes are keyed by -values. The manual says
The optional fifth parameter (-attributes) is provided to assign any of the common HTML attributes to an individual menu item. It's a pointer to an associative array relating menu values to another associative array with the attribute's name as the key and the attribute's value as the value.
individual menu items are <selects>
