First real Perl task at work

[ #18980 ]

So, after working here for more than a year, I finally get my chance to use
Perl for a real task (I had already use it for lots and lots of small tasks,
either for my personal use, for helping others or to impress others :-) ).

This particular task (which I will eventually do sometime today) consists of
editing the crontab of a user via web, considering that each line of the
crontab corresponds to a different process and should be edited seperately.

It's not a very difficult task (if that's difficult at all), but it's my
chance to impress my boss with the power of Perl :-)

Now lets search the CPAN and see what I shall use... there's a Config::Crontab, a Set::Crontab, ...

Oh, and thoughts are welcome :-)

    It was even much easier than I thought :-)

    Now I'm gonna have to take care of all the menus and stuff... argh... HTML and Javascript, probably... ;-(

      I must stress this part :-) I don't want anyone thinking it took me hours to achieve such a simple task :-)
