f00li5hjsoftw: oh, because of php's builtin mail() function?
jsoftwNo.
revdiablojsoftw: You probably can, but that doesn't mean the CGI is written ideally to modern Perl standards
Khisanthyou probably can, doesn't mean I would ever want to maintain and expand it :)
DrCherrythose mailer scripts are spammer magnets
revdiabloI used to think Perl CGI was ugly, but that's because I was looking at ugly examples (also I was 15, and not as smart as I am now, if you can believe that)
f00li5hDrCherry: pff, all traffic is good traffic [tm]
KhisanthIf you are writing a throw away script then the choice of language and any consideration other than "what can let me get things done fastest and with least work" is irrelevant
czthIIICGI needs a framework to deuglify
DrCherryheh
revdiabloThere are about 37 of them =)
Common ones I mean
jsoftwIm not going to expand it, I just ponder the idea of replacing it, instead of trying to figure it out and fix it.
revdiablojsoftw: It could be better for you. If you know PHP, and you could write it in PHP and be happy... well, go nuts
Khisanthpossibly better for us and #perl :)
pstickne_except for the fact using PHP *should* make you sad..
revdiabloKhisanth: Shhh, I was going to leave that unstated ;)
Khisanthevangelist are overly optimistic people
DrCherryyou could use a perl cgi front-end and do some kind of funky ajax submit. that'd be nerdy.
revdiabloDrCherry: A perl cgi frontend? I'd do the ajaxy bits in pure JS and use perl as a backend, if anything.
Khisanthwell this is getting worst, now we are throwing in JS for no apparent reason than to add buzzword?
revdiabloAjaxy stuff can be quite a bit nicer to use. The smaller requests are nice.
CbroKhisanth: Funny things are happening to the perl script... When i read in the file and print out the first couple of lines.. .they already have a SPACE character after each char... but the input file is OK!
Khisanth: Any clues as to why this might be happening
DrCherryno way, the js allows you to avoid a form submit
CbroI am just doing a simple while loop
like : while(<DAT>){ print $_ }
revdiabloDrCherry: You still have to submit requests
KhisanthCbro: I am not in the habit of guessing what code people have written, stopped doing that long ago because that wastes too much time
revdiabloDrCherry: It just happens in a different way
DrCherryrevdiablo, yeah with js
duh
actionDrCherry gets out the hair splitter
DrCherrygets out the hair splitter
revdiabloDrCherry: Yes, I understand. Did you see my earlier statement?
DrCherryrevdiablo, I was responding to Khisanth
Khisanthif you want validation, that still wouldn't need Ajax :)
if you ARE using ajax then what the heck are you avoiding again?
DrCherryreloading the page
f00li5hKhisanth: you can send back a tiny little bit less html
for the 1 or 2 submissions of your conteact form, ever
