View as plain text  
I run a small business.  A year and a half ago I embarked on a jorney to
port my DOS Foxpro Database to linux.  I selected mysql as an the engine
and and begand writing the app. using perl/dbi and perlmenu
module/curses as the front end at first I used NFS to share the databse
files on the LAN.  I was soon after convinced by a perl gut to ditch NFS
as and use apach/mod_perl and write the front end in HTML. 

I hired someone to help me and we wrote the first phase and I hate the
frontend.  I hate having to hit submit after every entry.  I hate the
way a browser looks and the wait it feels.  We're even tried using w3m I
still hate it.  I'm looking for a NON GRAPHICAL interface taht I guess
would work with apache mod-perl.  Any suggestions?  Does Perl Tk fit
this bill?
