( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I tried doing a search here for session ID information and I was either searching the wrong string or there isn't anything here.

I have a page that has paypal add to cart buttons and I need a way to force them to add a SHIPPING cost to it, too. There's no way to do what I want with just these buttons so I need to setup a small cart that holds all data on my server until it's finally calculated and one paypal button is created.

I have an HTML page that is using .shtml pages already for header and footer files so I figure I can add the perl script for the sessions to the header of all of my pages?

It will be a very simple cart, it won't do anything but hold product quantity, price and description. I just need information on session ids, what modules to use, if I can do it with all of my pages with .shtml and any other information you have on it. Perhaps a good intro tutorial that has examples?

Thanks for all your help!

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.
