Html form

dewwondm has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, my name is Dewwond Mapp. I'm new to Perl monks. I do have a question, and I hope that I am in the place. If I am not, please direct me to the right place. I have laid-out a custom contact form in Photoshop. I then sliced and transferred that form to Dreamweaver. My question is how do I convert the individual boxes(name,email, phone, and message) to active form elements? Please forgive me for being such a novice. However, I did come here to learn. Thanks.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    That's really more an HTML question than one for PerlMonks... because unless you have a solid understanding of HTML (that is, far deeper than exposure to DW), you'll likely find it difficult to utilize Perl's many capabilities for dealing with form elements ( ...and darn near everything else). [PS -- unless recall fails me, DW can handle that for you; badly, but well enough to be useable if your standards are low enough.]

    OTOH, if you truly grok how to write HTML and how a website works, you may want to read docs for CGI and HTML::Template. Alternately, you may find 'framework' alternatives such as Moose, Mojolicious or Catalyst to your taste.

    Those are deliberately short and incomplete recommendations; others will likely come forward with more and better ones, but be aware, learning enough Perl to make use of the items above will demand major investment of your effort.

    As to being a novice, we all were, at some point -- many here might describe themselves that way too... which reflects the fact that the Monastery holds educating novices, beginners, intermediates and even skilled professional programs get past their brain-spasms, glitches, and 'Duh!' moments. So welcome; however you decide to pursue your goal, if it involves Perl, you'll find help here.

      Thanks so much the speedy response. I'm truly grateful for the tips. I'm taking all the advice giving, and I will thoroughly use it to become more familiar with HTML, and the entire PerlMonks society.
