in reply to Perl vs. Javascript

Just see you have mod_perl installed. That will take care of the overhead.
Try to forget javascrit exists :-) Write everything in perl from the start!
You're in control of what happens cos it's serverside!

    mod_perl takes care of the server overhead, but the network latency may inconvenience users, especially those with poor connectivity to your server.

    The main advantage of client side validation is that it gives users an immediate warning that they need to correct their input, without having to wait for the server to respond to their request.

      I understand what you mean. But then you have to do double work. Program in javascript and then do it server-side again.
      Why this? Cos taint checking is only secure server-side.
      If you want to do everything double ok for me.
