After all these years, CGI is still the No. 1 way to deliver dynamic Web content, and Perl the most flexible tool for leveraging its power. In Writing CGI Applications with Perl, two long-time Perl fanatics show you how it's done.
Each chapter introduces at least one real-world web application, presenting the skeleton of the application, and explaining that skeleton a line at a time. Drawing on what you've already learned, Kevin Meltzer and Brent Michalski than suggest features you can add, making sure you have the guidance you need to add those features. The authors assume you know at least a little Perl. When you're finished, you'll know a lot. There won't be many Perl/CGI applications you can't write. Web forms. Cookies. Access counters. File uploaders. Click trackers. Web-based email. You name it.
As you might expect, Writing CGI Applications with Perl contains detailed coverage of the popular mod_perl Apache module: configuring it, using it, and writing your own mod_perl modules. You'll also find coverage of DBI, remote file and image manipulation, and (last but not least) XML.(Bill Camarda)
