Attaching subform data to main form as file

Attaching subform data to main form as file Can't Post

I'm in the process of consolidating several online forms at work into one. One of the things they want to do is add a link on the new form that pops up a subform, so that users can order pc's/software. Then, the main form, when submitted, will contain the order form as an attachment

Is it possible, in Perl, to do this? javascript allows me to do most of the form stuff, but won't let me create the data file and attach it to main form.

any help appreciated.

To popup a new browser window...


(or something like that) in your anchor tag.

As for the Perl to do the processing, well, you're asking a lot.

But why don't you use PHP instead? Yes. Perl can embed its output in html and send it to browsers, email boxes, personal computers, the global positioning system, other processes, mobile telephones, washing machines, coffee makers and obedient wives (well not yet, but I'm trying to make it so!). You can have any number of cgi scripts process your input from any number of sources. You can even make all your cgi and pl scripts talk to each other, and their children talk interprocessonically! But Perl is not really for everyday browser-http-webserver communication.

It sounds like you should start from the ground up and write a master program that will use horses for courses.
