I have created a perl version of the Code Project Discussion Forums. The perl version of the forum is very basic and lacks a lot of features. This project is an open-source project meaning that I am urging perl programmers to help make this forum better. Feel free to add features but don't forget to report them so I can update the source code file. Currently the forums don't use some sort of a database but future releases will use the mySQL database. This is only BETA 1 of version 1.0. The forums are tested under Apache for Win32. Currently there is no admin feature but future releases will definitely include an admin section.

Lets get our hands dirty...

Instructions on how to install the script are included in the zip file. Installing the script is very easy. The project is made up of 7 files and 2 directories.



 Where the emoticon icons are stored.


 Where the reply forms are stored


Install.txt: Contains instruction on how to install the script.
global.css: The CSS file used for the HTML pages. This does the hard work.
forum.html: This file contains the messages posted.
data.txt: A simple text file that keeps a count of how many messages are posted.
mouse.js: Contains JavaScript functions.
new.html: The form for posting a new message.

That's all there is to it.

To do...

There is lots of work to be done with the Perl Discussion Forums. The new versions will be releases right here at Code Project. Please give some feed back!
