Dynamic menus

4 New Member
Hi, I need to know how to create a dynamic menu-like the ones seen so often which will appear as page 12345 The current plans are to store the pages in a flat file system which would be something like $author|$title| $date etc.(of course in the actual text file I'm not actually using the dollar sign-only using it here for example purposes.

I know that somehow a for loop is used in this and for the past few days have been pulling my hair out trying to figure it out but am spinning my wheels in the mud at the moment. I have seen this in use so many places, including here but have never seen anything written as to how it is actually done.

I am not a pro, or a guru so to speak-though it is a strong goal but I have to get through this one. I can provide more details if necassary. Thanx in advance for any help anyone can provide BTW-I need this to happen using perl.

Also-I'm looking into learning MySQL with Perl, what are the differences as far as difficulty is concerned compared to simple, delimited flat files, I do know that MySql will handle much, much more information.

This can be done using a pagination module form CPAN. Also, there is an example of this in the MySQL Cookbook
