What tabular data do you have that can change its number of data points per item without having the data updated?

    Its a series of tables with images (e.g. sponsor logos). The point is I want to stretch it, i.e. expanding the width just brings up the stuff from the next line. Just like when you expand/contract a text window in Word or whatever.

      So it turns out it isn't a table at all (because the rows and columns have no semantic meaning) but actually a grid (a 2D representation of a linear series). In which case you should use the same method with Perl as you would without Perl: a responsive layout with appropriate CSS.

    If they had such data, they would have already posted it.
