Looking for help

Looking for help Can't Post

For the website of my kids I have a ďmangleĒ Java applet so that the kids can mangle pictures of friends, parents etc. (see This is a Java Applet. Everything works fine but the kids canít print the result of their mangling and canít mail the deformed picture. And they would love to have that possibility too. The normal print function does not give the mangled picture but the original or (with some browsers) only a very rough copy of the mangled picture. Now of course you can copy with the Printscreen button and paste it with a paintprogramme but for these young kids it wonít work. Iím looking for a ďpress one button solutionĒ. Now I donít know anything about Java but I heard it could maybe done by saving the mangled image to a server side programme en then send it further. Now Iím looking for some-one who could fix this for me. I realize it is probably not so easy and I could pay something depending on the costs. Anyone willing to help please reply! The applet has three class-files based on three source files which I all have. Also if you know someone else who could do this or if you know a better forum for this question, please let me know.

Maybe It's a better idea to push such a question at a forum about Java programming.

Perl is a scripting language, which is completely different from Java. Perl is used to make mail-form scripts, guestbooks, forums, link-pages, dynamic contents etc. Mostly the main point of the program is handling with text, and text files to store the data (like a forum script).

Java can run at a server (so called servlets) I've read something about that in my Java book, but we're just learning to program Java, so I don't know anything more about it.

Just to clarify a little -- Perl is much more than just a CGI language. Sure, people use it for guestbooks and such, but it's also used for networking, server management, and most of all, pattern matching -- it's regex engine is perfectly suited for munging text.

Not that what yapp said is wrong, but I'm just elaborating on Perl's usefulness :)
