  • You know there ARE other people in AU that know Perl and might have a motivation to help out...

    • Hi Adam

      Well, you're w-a-y to busy already.

      But seriously, I want to figure out for myself how to solve the remaining problems. The intellectual satisfaction I get from programming is of great importance to me.

      Nevertheless, I mention the module to help people thinking about doing something similar to rather direct their efforts to not reinventing the wheel, even if, in the case of the accounting 'profession', all wheels are square.

      • Hi

        Actually, there are many factors influencing my decision to CPAN or not.

        One is the requirement to set a 3-hour exam paper Real Soon Now, and write various lectures, and finish marking (Upload sooner to offload work).

        Another is people who've emailed me suggesting they might use the module (Upload sooner to allow evaluation).

        Desire to make the code as good as possible, to satisfy myself and to preempt bug reports (Upload later to allow self time to finish V 1.00).

        Enjoy the holiday (Upload later since, never having been to church, I have no religious obligations). I'm 59 in June, and thanx for asking :-).

        Having slept on it (deliberately) I've decided to upload it sooner rather than later.

        What I'll do first is change the run mode (it uses CGI::Application) transmission mechanism from hidden form variable to path info style. No point in us all doing that.

        Then I'll put it on CPAN and github.

        So, please hold your collective breaths until then.

        • Hi Folks

          I realized the problem which appeared to be YUI was my fault because I was switching back and forth between a CGI script and an FCGID script, without checking that the code generated the correct path info in the latter case.
