Quote from mt2k's home node:

"Sorry, under construction!"

My idea is to have a simple window showing a page constructed by a PERL script. The page includes a meta refresh tag that refreshes the page, say, every 5th second or even more often. There wouldn't be much to refresh on the page, except for a text saying "Control page". But the script creating the page would check the status of a game, a chat board or whatever, that runs in another window, not another frame in the same window. If the game window needs redrawing, the script would redraw it (using the target attribute), otherwise only the control page window would be redrawn.

So this is a kind of faked only-when-needed redrawing technique. The visual game page might be devided into frames with one frame showing the game, another frame showing a chatboard.

Im so sorry if this is not PERL enough, but I just started with Perl and I find this monastery very interesting. It's just that I havent found a forum where Perl, HTML, CGI, Yahtzee and frames can be discussed without someone immediately pointing out that "that's not a Perl subject" or "that's not a CGI subject".

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
