If anyone is failing here it's you. You complain that people aren't building perl modules for a specific use case, and now you have one example here, the instructions on how to do so have been provided, along with advice, and yet here you refuse the do the very thing you complain about. I don't believe your claim that you read the DataTables documentation, otherwise none of your bad decisions and some of your subsequent questions and continued refusal to accept that regardless of what you're doing, if you exhaust the resources of the client, it's not going to work. All these would have been avoided. None of this is Perl specific. These are more fundamental failures. The core module JSON::PP can return the JSON required to feed DataTables regardless that you reacted badly to the suggestion of frameworks, the server side code to page and filter the DataTables requests wouldn't be too difficult to achieve in plain old CGI, though you'd miss a lot of benefits/performance boosts provided by modern frameworks. Given the differences in datasets abstracting this into a separate cpan module seems impractical to develop/support/maintain given that it's less work to achieve without one. You insist you know exactly what you're doing yet haven't shown any evidence, despite being corrected, and seem offended that you may have to write some of your own to do what you want to do. You've made assumptions that I've used this a great deal, I haven't. You assume people agree with you for some reason, despite various people already having pointed out that this is not correct. 31 posts. None of this is demonstrably flexible.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
