( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks merlyn, that's just the kind of thing I was aiming for (though I don't need more than one page).

Just for the benefit of other monks, merlyn's column includes this:

sub DEFAULT_FIELD { textfield(shift, "", 60) }
as the way fields are produced unless specifically over-ridden, and the tables are produced like this:
print table({ Border => 1, Cellpadding => 5 }, map { Tr( th($_->[1]), td(($_->[2] || \&DEFAULT_FIELD)->($_->[0])) )} @info );
where the details of the form are in the @info array.

Update: you know what's occurring to me? The details of the form (arrays of arrays for the most part) could easily be stored in XML -- I'm sure if the column were written today that might have come up.

Title:
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.
