mortalhero has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Like many folks, I've taken the leap and created my own web site. I've decided to help mankind in a new (for me) way. I would like to create a page where a guest could go and enter a few values and using a formula that I developed, get a quick answer. Very simple, right?
I used Front Page to develop the site but I found that I cannot use it to do the aforementioned function. I was told I needed to use a script such as that of Perl.
I forgot to mention that for the moment I would like to keep my formula a secret. I will share it later if it becomes popular.
My question is, is Perl right for me? Do I need to learn it just to do this simple little function?
