    Tree menu?

    Is there anyway to make an expandable type of menue tree using perl? Something similar to - http://www.chipchapin.com/WebTools/M...enuXL/#noicons. I hope there is, because I need to put something up on a website.

    Thanks.

    if by expandable, you mean in the browser without refreshing the whole page, you would use AJAX or javascript/DHTML. Perl alone can't do that for a cgi script.

    What Kevin said.
    Yeah it's gotta be some form of javascript. You could have Perl, PHP, or just about anything implant the javascript into the page but the end result is javascript.

    Learn javascript/DHTML or find a script already written. Or seek help in the javascripting/DHTML forum. There is a perl module CGI::AJAX (I think) but I have never used it.
