Printing and Layout
I have a couple of problems that I havent been able to sort myself. I am a newbie programmer and findind Perl a wonderful language to learn. First project is a phonebook search engine for our intranet which works really well for searching and editing. Anyway - to the problems.
- Is it possible to columnise a HTML table so that if a flat-file is read line-by-line with associated 'split'. Currently that lists down the page in a nice neat table (4 fields per line). What I am after is to put the whole table in 2 columns down the page. Is this possible??
- After doing the above I would like there to be a print button that will print to the default printer is this possible?
- If I can't do number one and have it print to screen, is there a way I can send a preformatted table to the default printer direct??
I hope that this all makes sence to someone who might be able to help.
