"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 methods either, but i like what your code does. :) Here is another version that only uses

#!/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. :)

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.
