To try and answer your questions ..

As neniro points out, one of the benefits of using the OO interface for the CGI module is the fact that it doesn't cause namespace pollution. For large applications, that's an obvious advantage; for small applications less so.

Other benefits would include the potential to use multiple CGI objects, but why would you want to? Submit buttons can have values to distinguish them, which can be read as parameters if you give your buttons names.

As far as 3 goes, I think you're on your own and stuck with JavaScript. To achieve this, you need the client to perform the submit. As all of your Perl lives server-side, Perl doesn't have the ability to manipulate the client in this way.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
