I've finally gotten around to teaching myself CGI.pm. I already see it
takes a different mindset from your typical GUI design. I picked up
Lincoln Stein's book sometime ago and more recently the second edition
of O'Reilly's CGI Programming book. From the two books I'm seeing
basically two different approaches.; the self-contained approach, which
I favor at the moment, and separating the html from the server side code
to whatever degree.
I have a simple project I'm learning with that connects with MySQL. I've
made decent progress so far with the self-contained approach, until
seems to focus on the self-contained approach but from what I can see
code. It covers the self contained approach in the DBI section but
creating the forms with CGI.pm first, copying the html source from the
anyone share thier strategies for dealing with this? Is client-side
validation overrated? Worth the trouble?
