"I do not usually like to mix ... But this should at least be on the right track."

I don't like to mix hardcoded HTML tags and CGI.pm methods either, but i like what your code does. :) Here is another version that only uses CGI.pm:

#!/usr/bin/perl -T use strict; use warnings; use CGI::Pretty qw(:standard); my @hour = qw(7am-8am 8am-9am 9am-10am 10am-11am); my @day = qw( Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday ); print header, start_html, start_form, table( Tr(th[' ',@hour]), map { my $day = $_; Tr( th({align=>'right'},$_), td[map checkbox("_$day",0,$_,''), @hour], ) } @day ), submit, end_form, h2('Values'), ul( map { li(substr($_,1,length $_)) . ol(li[param($_)]) } grep {/^_/} param(), ), end_html, ;
By appending an underscore to each of the names of the check boxes, i can extract them out quite easily. This does, however, complicate things when displaying those names (hence the substr call). Hope this helps. :)
